  • Excerpt: Can't believe people are saying this lens is soft..either they don't use the proper technique or they have the shutter down too low. I am not a pro but have gotten excellent images out of the lens.

  • Excerpt: Have two children who are into winter athletics (Ice Skating and Hockey), I was looking for a 2.8 70-200mm lens to assist in catching the right shots in ice arenas that can be somewhat on the dark side.

  • Excerpt: I took a chance & bought the lesser version of this lens, as it has no image stabilization. But with practice, this has not been a problem for me. I bought it for a wedding shoot & I like it. Practice is useful. It hunts in low light, but you just need to be prepared for that.

  • Excerpt: This my first telephoto lens of this magnitude. I bought it in preparation for an Alaskan cruise to catch the scenery. I was able to capture shots of distant glaciers and whales breaching. A little heavy at first so i used a mono-pod to stabilize it.
