Auto focus is super fast and its light enough to carry around

  • Summary: This lens is all they say it is. I waited until the price dropped a little bit and it made it worth it. Auto focus is super fast and its light enough to carry around. Great for birds in flight..I love it..

Sharp and fast enough

Steven D. Yee, Amazon
8 April 2015
  • Summary: Was worried that this lens might not be fast enough (I currently use an f2.8 80-200) but I needed the reach, for most of my outdoor sports shooting this has been a great lens (especially in crop mode) and many of the indoor arenas have been more than bright enough for this lens.

19 March 2015
  • Excerpt: Received this lens over a week ago and have used it almost every day since then. Got it mainly for wildlife photography and it has worked great. I had previously used a Nikon 1.7 teleconverter with my Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 lens as recommended by a well known Nikon blogger and there is no comparison,...
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

Great Lens and Glass

JC, B&H Photo
13 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I think this lens is great, I own the previous version and this one is better. The auto focus is faster, thanks to the motor in the lens. I dont think the barrel is to big as others have stated, but I have good size paws and actually think the lens feels better in my hands.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Poor Nikon quality control

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens and could not remove the rear lens cap. Even after using many utilities that open stuck jars to a huge plummer wrenched that removes the toughest bolts. Nikon customer care is indifferent to customer problems and thankfully i could return the lens.
  • Cons: Tough To Attach
