comment:Well it is not fair to compair with my 200/4 on color but with below 200mm this lens holdup very well with 200/4 and for the price this is a excellent lens.The image shown very sharp even on 400mm and I don't know why it said 4.5-6.7 but I found it is 4.5/6.3 no biggy just wonder. Overall it is a excellent lens. You can't go wrong with it.
