|comment:||I have only had my copy of this lens for a week now but have been out on a couple of occassions and taken quite a lot of shots with it. First impressions are that it takes a bit of getting used to (technique wise) mainly due to the weight. I have had a few potentially nice shots just go out of focus where I've moved mid shot due to the weight of the lens.|
However, technique aside when you get a shot right with this lens it is very very sharp. I've used it for some bird shots and the detail in some pof the shots is truly amazing - something I have not seen in any other lens that I have used.
It has given new life to my old Kenko x2 TC (that I originally bought new with my Minolta Dynax 5xi) and works brilliantly with my Sony x1.4 TC.
This lens certainly appears to be a keeper and is already challenging me to improve my composition and technique.
