10 out of 10 points and recommendedLightweight, Cheap, lots of value for the moneyOnly f/5.6 @ 200mm
Excellent lens with a lot of value for the money, and extremely lightweight.reviewed November 6th, 2008 (purchased for $280)
The downside is that it´s not very light sensitive, but the 70-200 mm f/2.8 costs roughly 9 times as much, at least in Sweden, so it was never an option.
Really a great lens, fantastic for portraits.
10 out of 10 points and recommendedSharpness, Build quality, AF speed!none
Really sharp, very thin DoF.reviewed January 26th, 2009 (purchased for $500)
Build quality is great, autofocus is INCREDIBLY fast, even compared to the 18-55 VR and 55-200mm VR lenses.
Simply a great lens, at a bargain price.
9 out of 10 points and recommendedIQ, Small, Lightweight, Cheap, Very FastMaybe too small? No distance scale, AF perhaps isnÃÂ´t the fastest
Great lens, very cheap and extremely fast in low light. Very compact and lightweight, a bargain really, not much to argue about that.reviewed April 17th, 2009 (purchased for $230)
IQ is good, but of course not as good as the AF-S 60mm macro, neither is the AF-speed, but still, a great lens.
