Summary: I have not used this lens sufficiently to give a detailed review. That being said, I have taken some photos with this lens & so far I like it quite a bit. In one lens, this lens allows such a wide range of composition with just a slight increase in weight it's a major convenience, simplifying my picture taking.
Excerpt: I shoot alot of sports mostly rodeo, I needed a lens that would reach out to the other end of the arena but open up when the action gets close to me. This lens has worked out great, good clear photos and gets me right into the acton. It has made a big difference in my shots. I would recommend this lens to everyone. If it was a f2.8 it would be the perfect lens.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization
