Excerpt: I bought this lens so I'd have a decent zoom for travel to use for video and stills. The size and build quality are excellent, as are the optics. However, there is one huge issue that caused me to return it: The manual focus ring sticks. I went down to my local camera store and tried several.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I dreamed of this lens a long time before I pulled the trigger. If you are sitting on the fence like I was, pull the trigger, you will not regret it! The night shots with existing light are out of this world.
Excerpt: Awesome lens! Very sharp in all focal lengths. You can tell a big difference in sharpness with the vibration reduction. Excellent for low light shooting when you can't get too close to subject.
Excerpt: I was renting this lens for 98% of my shoots, and I finally bit the bullet and picked up one of my own. It is the BEST lens out there! The only downside is it's weight, but I can live with that. Although I will say it feels a bit heavier now that I'm paying it off ;)
Excerpt: This lens nails the focus with AF Fine Tune set to 0, at all focal lengths, on my D810. The images have excellent contrast and resolution, to the point that with the TC14 E-II at an effective 280mm it nearly matches the image quality of my 300mm f/2.8 AFS VR-II.
Excerpt: As a seasoned pro, I've hung up my 70 to 20mm 2.8ED lens for the F4.It's razor sharp and over 20 ounces lighter the the F2.8....a no brainer.Incredible in low light....wish i bought it sooner!
