Pros: Size, Weight, Construction, I.S., ease of use.

Cons: None to date.

Opinion: I have the 24-105, and 500mm and needed something in between. I had the 100-400 in the past and sold it. I liked the 100-400 for versatility but I didn't seem to get a lot of keeper shots with it. I choose this lens for the weight and price. I backpack a lot and need a lens of this length for nature shots without a lot of weight. I have been very satisfied with this lens so far I have taken very good macro shots in my wifes flower bed and great sport shots at my Granddaughters soccer games. I would recommend this lens to Juza followers.

Pros: Perfect weight-millimeter combination for all wildlife, including the close-up

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: it is the first fixed that I own and I no longer detach it from the reflex and the extender, because I do everything: from swallows in flight, to chamois, to spider in the canvas; being able to make pseudo-macro at a distance makes it the ideal OB for fiphoninsects - beautiful idea the lampshade that is not lost, and after wrapping it in a canvas camo is protected and also well camouflaged

Pros: Sharpness, portability, integrated hood, AF accuracy and reduced weight.

Cons: Maybe a little slow autofocus in very dynamic situation

Opinion: A lens that has few rivals. Very clear already at room temperature and with a blurred piacevole.rnLa its uniqueness is due to the flexibility of use despite being a fixed and not zoom.rnOttima for close-up with his beautiful ingrandimento.rnMolto report on portraits, thanks to a soft blur .rne usable for sports and wildlife photos also thanks the opportunity to be moltiplicata.rnAdoro integrated hood, very comfortable and practical.

Pros: weight, distance min Mass fire, excellent with 1.4x multiplier, built-in lens hood, sharpness, image quality

Cons: shame about the weather sealing, but you can not want everything without rise in price

Opinion: Are literally fallen in love with this lens, I would not change never even telephoto lenses with the best card that I do not think they can be so light, comfortable and versatile as this, from an almost macro with a focusing distance of 1.5m to 300mm, losing even a little with a multiplier of 1.4x and offering excellent opportunities in various photographic fields

Pros: Sharpness, construction, excellent in close-up, removable hood

Cons: undetected

Opinion: Using this objective for some years, bought second-hand, virtually untapped, at a very onesto.rnL'aggettivo price that most I would attribute to this lens is: affidabile.rnPraticamente I never happens that the photo is almost perfect .rnNitidezza at the highest level, even at full aperture, color very loyal, good detaching of the plans and blurred piacevole.rnLo stabilizing, albeit old design, is quite effective, using the limiter, it becomes even putting enough even to veloce.rnBuona manual focus, with very fluida.rnCiò ring that I like most of this lens has macro capability. rnIl ratio 1: 4, on these focal lengths, and with this quality of image, ensures the close-up absolutely perfette.rnNon almost never using the ratio 1: 1, but preferring subjects quite large (eg dragonflies), l ' I even preferred the Canon 180 Macro, I have in fact sold. rnLo I also suitable for tight portraits, although this is not my genere.rnPer As for the weight, I find it very balanced, very maneggevole.rnSicuramente lens recommended.
