Excellent Lens

Pavel Chi, Adorama
30 December 2014
  • Excerpt: It is a prime lens of high quality. Quiet, fast, focus, overall smooth. Everything you would expect for the price. This is a great birding and outdoor lens. The low light usage is limited but logical considering the focal length vs diameter.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

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
  • Cons: Heavy, Slow Focus

  • 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
  • Cons: Heavy

Loistava kuvanlaatu, mutta haastava tarkennus

Hemuwi, Verkkokauppa
13 November 2011
  • 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.
