|comment:||I bought this lens for it's range in combination with it's size and weight. Although I made some lovely pictures with it, I cannot say that there is some kind of magic between me and this lens.|
When photographing moving objects (cars, planes) on longer distances, I miss something. It just isn't that sharp enough to impress. Next to that I miss a bit of color magic.
As I said, made some lovely pictures on shorter ranges but as I bought it with the range as important argument, this is not my favorite lens.
