You get what you pay for!

This review is long over due, but here's the deal kids. Yes, this is a big price tag but once you use a lens of this caliber, you will be astounded! I purchased the Nikon 70-300mm with my current camera a couple years ago( kijiji find) and at the time, thought it was a good deal. Don't get me wrong, if you are a beginner it's an alright lens, but I found it too soft for what I wanted to achieve. I like wildlife photography and the images just weren't up to snuff. I also found it a slow lens. I bit the bullet, maxed out my line of credit and purchased this beauty of a lens! This lens is razor sharp! it surpassed my expectations and it's FAST at the F2.8. I have found for my wildlife shots, F4.0 is the sharpest. Another nice advantage of this lens is that you can add a teleconverter to it for extra reach if you need it. I won't lie, this can get heavy, and not being able to put a filter on the end of the lens to protect it can be nerve-wracking but if you have the lens hood on it's not that big of a deal. Basically, if you save your pennies( a whole lot of them) and buy this lens, you will not be disappointed!
