Outstanding

Deek, WEX
11 March 2012
  • Summary: An Outstanding lens. Cant get over how fast it focuses. Images pin sharp. VR tripod setting a great advantage. Lens is heavy but you would expect this with a 500mm lens. Would have preferred a lens case rather than the aluminium carrying case that it came with.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Quick Focus, Rugged, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy
