  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

  • Summary: Fantastic lens for bird photography. This is the first DSLR lens I've purchased, but I'm blown away by the crispness of the photos and the ability of the lens to focus fast and accurately under an impressive array of conditions.

Classic Glass Lives Up to Its Reputation

Bird Lover, B&H Photo
1 December 2014
  • Excerpt: My main subject for photography is avian life. I've gone to this lens after using the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM for 4 years in the field. If you're shooting at high enough shutter speed in good light the lack of IS isn't really noticeable.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Really nice telephoto lens

Rob, B&H Photo
19 October 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens takes some really nice photos, especially outdoors in full sunlight. The relatively small aperture means that low light performance is not that great but this is easily remedied by goosing up your ISO settings. With an ISO of 400 I can get some decent hand-held shots even on cloudy days.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light
