Summary: The lens was just as described and came quickly and arrived in perfect shape. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the collar is stiff and hard to turn for vertical shots. But I think that is common with this particular lens...
Summary: This lens has no internal auto focus motor....so make sure your camera body has one inside. I missed this when ordering. Thankfully, KEH's customer service (Dan) was outstanding in helping me sort through my return. They processed the return quickly and without hassle.
Summary: This is a fine lens, certainly capable of reaching out and touching subjects at long distances, but it needs to be paired with a camera that has the built-in autofocus. Nikon probably left that motor off this lens because of its already hefty weight.
Summary: So far I am disappointed by the resulting images coming out of this lens. In some cases very soft images, not as Sharp as I thought they would be. I have much better results with my Sigma 150-500 mm. This may change when I get used to this lens, may be.
