All of the other reviews say what needs to be said about the operation of this lens and I can only concur. I unboxed this lens in my hotel room 18 months ago. I put it on the camera and with auto focus on, just continued to focus on objects in the room. I was fascinated by the ever so soft little whirring sound and the almost inaudible pout when focus is achieved. I still do this from time to time in between putting great images (for me) on my sensor. Read more
This lens is incredible, If you can afford it then it's a must have. the speed and clarity is outstanding. It's no wonder this is the lens all the paps use. Strong and weather sealed, it will take all you can give it and more. It is heavy and it stands out in a crowd but it is a must have for any photographer that wants to go pro.. With a 2x converter it is great for wildlife closeups or at 70mm its a great portrait lens.. you get what you pay for.. Read more
Truly a fabulous mid range telephoto. Bit heavy but it will be worth the weight when you see the results. I immediately purchased a uv filter to protect the front glass. Would recommend this. The optics are truly amazing, and the focus mechanisms are spot on. Well, is it worth it....save your pennies as this is worth every cent. I have 4 L series lenses...this is by far the very best....even better than my 180L prime when used as a telephoto. Read more
This is a brilliant lens at a fantastic price offered by SMIFU. I ordered this lens in the peak Christmas season and was surprised to see it arrive so quick! Mark is a pleasure to deal with, and always quick to respond to queries. Read more
