Not the lens for me

  • Excerpt: Lens at 4lbs was just to heavy. Most of my shots were of surfers and was shooting in the 250-300 range. Already own a lens to cover that range.
  • Pros: Rugged
  • Cons: Heavy, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus, Tough To Attach

Affordable Telephoto Zoom Lens

  • Excerpt: This would be my first super telephoto zoom lens with OS. My background was professional wedding photography and video. I read some of the other comments about this lens. Ok, it's a handful and has low light issues but if you read the specs you should understand why. Lets face it folk's for the money and performance you can't beat it.(Hands Down) The OS works fine and love the manual focus ring.

Good for the money.

AcierX, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Faster in low light than I expected, but not as fast (obviously) as a fixed 2.8 or 4 would be. The lack of a lock at any range extension requires a bit more on lens concentration but isn't a killer - the hardest part is the extension portion of the lens ring turns opposite to all my Nikon lenses so some muscle memory work gets in the way at times on my end.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Heavy, Lens Creep

Very good lens

  • Excerpt: Principal use so far has been to photograph Bald Eagles here in CO. Have used it hand-held and resting on the tripod for eagles perched and in flight. Yes, it's a large lens, but it focuses quickly and I found it quite easy, even zoomed in at 400 mm plus, to track a relatively close-by (flying) eagle and get shots. Useful photos of perched eagle from 100 yards. Appears quite sharp; some vignetting evident in the viewfinder at 500 mm.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Summary: Bought this lens for my wife for Christmas. She has only used it a few times but seems to really like. Took some great pictures of me at the race track. Picture of me was very sharp even though I was moving quite fast. Background had a nice blurr to show the speed. And it was a cloudy day so the light wasn't the best.

a little blurring at a great distance, but for 100 yards or so

  • Summary: So far, this lens has done everything my husband has asked it to do. It is big, so tripod is a given. His photos are almost professional quality using this lens. a little blurring at a great distance, but for 100 yards or so, perfect!

REALLY a sweet piece of camera equipment.

  • Summary: I couldn't be happier with this lens. Yes, it's a bit heavy, but it's not unwieldy. Image stabilization and autofocus work beautifully. I've been shooting squirrels and songbirds in my backyard since it arrived last week. I'll never be a good enough photographer to justify a more expensive lens, and I can't tell the difference anyway. Hate that I didn't have it on my recent African safari, but it's darn sure going with me to Alaska!
