Excerpt: Simply the most amazing lens I have every used. Lightening fast focus. Beautiful bokeh. Ridiculous sharpness. Having f2.8 really helps in low light. You will wish you had bought it sooner once you have it. Save up for it. Worth every penny. Weighs a metric ton and is LONG. Like they said in Jaws..."you're going to need a bigger" bag. Had to move up to the Slingshot 302 from the 202. These cons are a small price to pay for perfection though.
Pros: Beautiful bokeh, Fast focus, Low Light Performance, Very sharp
Excerpt: This is a rare case where superlative specs translate into consistently high real-world results. Nearly every shot is bright, sharp, clear and in focus, with great contrast and minimal lens artifacts. Some difficult tasks this lens has handled with ease: Hummingbirds in low light. No problem. Focus is not always accurate due to the erratic nature of their motion, but a very high percentage of in-focus shots is possible (see attached image). Fast-moving aircraft.
Pros: Accurate focus, Fast focus, Good contrast, Minimal Vignette, Sharp
Excerpt: I use my gear mainly for professional work, but I also still have fun with personal photography projects too. This Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VRII lens when attached to my Nikon D600 is an excellent combination for capturing everything from the action at a sporting event to beautiful images of a family against the sunset or a young couple in love!
Excerpt: I purchased this for many reason. I haven't had anything with a decent reach for a while. I borrowed a 70-200 from a friend to shoot my sons football games this year and feel in love. I found this lens is fast and sharp as a prime. If you attach the teleconverter you can have some serious length. Taking this lens to a 140-400 and 210-600 if I switch to DX mode. This lens feels at home on my D800.
