Summary: I use this lens while hiking and enjoy the versatility of being able to shoot at 50 mm and then zoom to 500 for a wildlife shot. The lens also works well for close-ups as it has near focusing capability. OS works very well and pictures are clear and sharp.
Summary: This is an impressive lens at less than half the cost of the Nikon offering. I take a lot of cityscape photos and I'm several miles from the subject, yet when properly focused, this lens captures details of signs on the highway and the structures of the buildings are clear and crisp.
Summary: pro's 1) You don't need to constantly change lenses. 2) images are tack sharp 3) image stabilization works well con,s 1) autofocus goes hunting at critical times 2) lens is heavy 3) some vignetting at 500. 4) somewhat stiff when going from 50 mm up.
