Excerpt: This is a follow up to my previous post. I've used this lens twice now to shoot surfers, with the 2x teleconverter of course.

Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: Had this for a year or so - a bit surprised at the quality, but not complaining! Used this for a lot of College Football, Softball, and some Wildlife and pleasantly surprised at the Sharpness. I've used a lot with the 1.4 extender and still have VG to Excellent results.
Excerpt: I've waited one month before writing this review. I have another long lens (Tamron 200-500) which has been great for outdoor daytime sports. I needed a 2.8 that had reach, particular for indoor concert shots, etc, so purchased this big boy. Yes, it's beastly heavy.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
I am very pleased with the results from the pictures I have taken

Summary: I shoot high school football and volleyball for our school and Maxpreps. I could get away with my Nikon D4 and Tamron 70-200mm f2.8 for the school and web postings, but Maxpreps requirements are targeted for 8x10 print quality photos only.
