comment:Light, Sharp and fast with excellent color and bokeh, works perfect with 1.4 apo tele converter if needed, with its range, speed and quality it makes it great for low light indoor events or for larger wildlife photos outdoors, I also use as a portrait lens at 15 to 20 feet. (Its amazing what this lens does for just $1,000.00)
