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 received some less than favorable reviews on the web since it came out. I believe one of the overall complaints was the slow AF.

Get this lens for sports photos - day or night action - they will be great!

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.
Summary: I usually shoot high school sports but I was asked to shoot some college football. For daytime shots, this lens is amazing! Lots of fun to use with different zoom points and great reach for close-ups. A bit heavy, so use your monopod or tripod.
Summary: I take it with me whenever I am in a situation to photograph wildlife. I may also keep it with me for outdoor weddings that tend to get spread out so that I can get the longer telephoto reach.
Summary: I did not expect anything fantastic from this lens, since it is less than half of the later version. Performance was a pleasant surprise though, and if you shoot this lens at F6.3, it does very well for sharpness, contrast, color and AF (using a Nikon D7100).
