comment:Fast and furious : sports, action, low light condition, this lens is amzing ! The image that delivers this lens is wonderful, even wide open. It looks so beautiful. The AF is very fast, and faster with the focus limiter. Very compact, this lens is the reason why I won't buy a 70-200 f2.8 G.
