Fast Telephoto Zoom Won't break the Bank

Sharp, fast zoom at a good price

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens because I began photographing some events, and for shooting indoor I needed a fast lens. I don't have any previous experience with similar lenses but I'm flattered from the results. I use it on a Nikon D800. I found the autofocus really fast and silent. I'm impressed from the OS (Optical Stabilizer), it made it really easy to shoot free hands at 1/60s while zooming all the way out to 200mm.
  • Pros: Affordable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Silent
  • Cons: Non Tropicalized, Uncompfy Hood

Great Lens, but NOT an L Lens.

  • Excerpt: If you're like so many people, you probably came across this lens after looking at the 2.8L ii Canon lens, and are saying to yourself "it's half the cost, it's probably just as good". Continue reading...First off, let me say this is a great lens, that is well built, and does an awesome job for it's extremely affordable price point. We've used this with a Mark iii and a Mark ii for the last year or so.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: It is a relatively new purchase for me but I am impressed with the overall quality and performance of this lens. I have not used the equivalent Nikon lens so can't compare the two. However, I was very clear about how much I was going to spend. If this is your budget, go for it.

Jury is still out.

  • Excerpt: I've only owned this lense for about two weeks and have used it on probably a half dozen shoots. I guess it would not be fair to compare this to the Canon "L" series, but unfortunately its all I have to go by. Most of the other lenses in my bag are of the "L" variety with the exception of my Canon 85mm prime lense. The feel right out of the box is a bit plastic. Its heavy but thats not an issue for me. The bokeh is nice and the images are fairly sharp.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus

  • Excerpt: Can hand hold at a 50th with no blur. The OS (stabilization) flickers from time to time. Not sure if that is normal or not. I'm use to the zoom ring being closer to the camera body and this one is at the end if the lens and going to take some getting use to.

Very nice lens

  • Excerpt: Lens is takt sharp on my D600. I am very pleased with this lens. The only reason I did not give this lens 5 stars is due to the refocus that seems to happen each time i slightly depress the shutter without changing composition? Not sure what thats about but still great pictures.
