negative:Can be tricky with focus
comment:I think I got a bargain, I love this lens but have not tried it too much outside yet, but cant wait to take it to the park and do some european snow shots with it. Have waited a long to find a copy and cannot be more pleased with it. The 70 - 210 is a slightly better portrait lens in my opinion.
