  • It really is worth the money!

  • January 14, 2014
  • By: Peeter

With some financial trepidation, I explored the internet reviews of this lens and decided to buy it in the late fall of 2013. I am not disappointed!! On a photo shoot in Cuba, it performed superbly in capturing birds and para-sailers. Indoors, in large rooms, it was quite good when one was far enough away that an f2.8 200mm was not feasible. However, where the 80-400mm has been spectacular has been for outdoor wildlife (especially bird) photography, outdoor sports photography, and for sports photography in well lit indoor settings, such as for professional hockey. Its autofocus is very impressive. As an example, for bird photography it can cut through the twigs and branches to capture images that otherwise would have required manual focussing. You will not regret buying this lens.

  • Costly but a great lens

  • May 01, 2014
  • By: Brian

The price was a bit intimidating but after the initial sticker shock, the value of the lens became apparent. Optically the lens is great. The 4 stop stabilization permits successful hand held shots at shutter speeds far slower than I expected. In all honesty, I've only been using the lens for a few weeks but I am very impressed and satisfied so far. On the negative side, it is quite heavy.
