10 out of 10 points and recommendedThere is not a single negative in this lens. Not one.Weighs a ton. . . better do your push-ups.
This is simply the best lens I have ever used. If you are shooting indoor sports, in low-light gyms, you need to find a way to obtain this lens.reviewed July 31st, 2008 (purchased for $3,900)
I used this lens paired with my D2Hs and it was unbelievable, and I could have lived shooting with that combination forever. . . and then in February I purchased a D3. . . oh, my. This is the greatest sports shooting combination I can imagine.
I also have a 70-200 and sadly, I never use it. I made the mistake of getting the 200. . . mistake only in the sense that my need for the 70-200 is little to none.
If you can afford it, you can buy no better lens on the planet to take indoor sports shots.
