reviewswhat are people saying

"The manual/auto focus switch is not hard to get used to and is certainly easy to operate without the need to hunt for it reguardless of the camera/lens orientation."

"I bought this lens to take pictures of my sons select soccer games, with my f/5.6 lens the pictures would have a blur. The pictures I took this weekend are unbelievable. There was no blur and I took about 300 photos over two days."

"I would not recomend taking pictures at 200mm at f2.8. At that setting, the lens has a few issues with clarity. Focus is kinda slow."
