I'm glad I have this lens!

Excerpt: Living in Western Colorado, I try to get out as often as possible to photograph wildlife. In just a couple of weeks time I have captured the wild horses of the Little Book Cliffs and the bald eagles that have returned to the valley to fish the small streams and rivers. This lens has done a beautiful job of capturing the various wildlife on the western slope. By using the 300mm, I didn't have to get too close to the wild horses, thus disturbing them.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have had this lens for three weeks and used it for few hundred photos. I use it mainly to photograph wildlife and landscapes I have found it to be sharp - very close to being as sharp as my sharpest lens. It produces very little distortion. Colors are rich and brilliant. Contrast is very good. The autofocus is very well set up and fast. It feels solid and very well made.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This lens is great! Fast auto focus, sharp and accurate. The lens is heavy, but what would you expect in a weather sealed, 300mm lens. You can really reach out and get that impossible shot with this one.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Summary: Kuvanlaadultaan ja yleiseltä toiminnaltaan aivan loistava objektiivi. Toimii hyvin käsivaralta hämärässäkin, objektiivin tarkkuus mahdollistaa korkeampien herkkyyksien käyttämisen, kuin esimerkiksi 55-300mm objektiivilla, jolla tulee melkoista suttua korkeilla ISO-arvoilla. Tarkennus toimii K5 rungolla kohtalaisesti, välillä on vaikeuksia lukita tarkennusta hyvässäkin valossa.
