comment:Bought this lens for my trip to the Grand Canyon, to get good pictures of birds, well it is a perfect lens for birds.
very sharp,

Now I have this lens a couple of months, when I’m out for pictures this is my lens !!

Don’t use my Solligor TC much (I have to get a Sigma TC hope this will be better) , it will work on the sharpness and the colours,
