compared to:- Sigma 70-200 2,8 EX DG
price paid:
positive:- Sharp
- Nice colours
- Fine built
- Lens hood ++
- Overall it is a beautiful lens
negative:- It is heavy (not a suprise), you want to use it with a tripod or a monopod when shooting for longer times.
comment:The lens hood system is very useful and easy to use! I have owned it only for few months, but have only positive experiences. You can get very sharp pictures at f2,8. Love to have more of these G- lenses :)!
