Get this lens for sports photos - day or night action - they will be great!
30 October 2013
Summary: Bought this lens to take pictures of my son's senior year in high school football season and WOW! It has been used with my Nikon D7000. I have taken pictures of day games, night games, pictures of players, pictures of fans and pictures of cheerleaders - they are all amazing. Clear pictures even low-light action shots taken using extreme ISO levels like 3,200 and 4,000. I love this lens.
Summary: This lens is a monster. Biggest and heaviest lens I own. It arrived today and I took a few shots to test it at 80mm (120mm APS-C sensor) and 400mm (600mm APS-C sensor). I bought this to extend the telephoto range from my 70-300mm Nikon lens. I do a lot of wildlife photography and this lens should allow me to get really tight shots. From the few preliminary shots I took, looks like it can really blow out the background (DOF) even at F8 and F13.
