Severely dissatisfied.

TechOps, Amazon

  • Summary: Not sure if I just got a bundle of bad glass, but I couldn't get this lens to focus on my D7000. Tried it for 2.5 weeks, making many adjustments to fine-tune focus settings, still no joy. 70mm was back focused, 200mm was front focused. For $1000+ I expected better quality.

  • Summary: I've bought the lens and I thought it had a ''very good'' rate for a used item, but then when i unpacked the lens, and attached it to my camera, it didn't focus and the zoom didn't work, that's why I returned it to the address you gave me.

POOR BUILD

Rey, Amazon
15 December 2012
  • Summary: Unfortunately, I can't say that I was happy with this item. I purchased this item based on recommendations and was primarily using it for sports photos. Well it only lasted 4 months when I found that the lens had fallen apart while attached to the camera in my padded bag.

Buy It Somewhere Else (on Amazon) Besides 47th Street.

  • Summary: CC:Amazon Customer Service This is a replacement for the exact same lens, b/c it is starting to wear out after 100,000+ photos. One of THE great lenses. As for 47th Street Photo:Customer satisfaction must not be a big deal here.

Nice while it still worked ...

Larry, Amazon
13 October 2009
  • Summary: I have had the lens for slightly over one year - just long enough for the warranty to have expired - and the auto-focus no longer functions. When I took the lens to the local camera shop, I was told that I was the second person that day with this lens who experienced the failure of the auto focus...

Back focus is an issue!

Peter D. Raphael, Amazon
5 October 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this lens after having owned the Tamron. This is a great lens except that I received mine with a significant back focus issue. I've read others complaining about this as well on the Nikon mount. I just don't believe this is acceptable in a lens at this price point.
