Conclusion

Optically excellent - very slightly soft at f 2.8 but by f 5.6 results are superb. Pity it doesn’t feel like a Canon L lens or a Nikon pro lens - but then it is half the price.  Great results - I just wish it was nicer to use.

Highly Recommended

Interested in whether this lens can outperform my ageing Nikon 80-200 f2.8 AF ED?
