Showing 1-10 of 500
Not for action shots
3 weeks ago
Summary: Fantastic for still shots but if you want action shots of, for instance, birds in flight, then don't buy this. The focusing is much, much too slow and you'll miss the shot. I bought this for a trip to the Galapagos Islands and I did get some stunning photos, but again, only when the subject was...
Excerpt: Using this thing on a FX sensor has been amazing simply for the fact that I can now reach out, distance-wise, to my subjects by another 30%. There's a crop box in your viewfinder showing the actual frame captured when coupled with the full-frame sensor.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Summary: Always wanted to upgrade in lens. Plus treat myself. Kind of strange the two tele and wide lens is attached to the zoom. The 300 works great with my Nikon D90. With the other lens attach. Have to do it manually. The small kit with the tripod will never work with the SLR.
