I bought this for its long reach for wildlife photos. I also use it on an olympus body. Autofocus speed and tracking are fair, but that is also dependent on the camera body. Image quality is excellent, I have taken images with this lens that rival National Geographic. There is some purple fringing, but it is mild and easily removed in Photoshop. The lens and camera fell on a hard dirty surface when a cheap plastic aftermarket clip broke, but both still worked fine afterwards, so I would say it is a durable lens. All in all, quite pleased with this lens.
Such amazing lens i love the sharpness i tried to compare two lenses F2.8 and F4 and to tell you the truth F4 have much sharper images! perfect for portrait nature and any kind of photography!!! weights 3 times less then 2.8 and gives you much more than 2.8. less expensive and sharper!!! IS works amazingly good!!!Autofocus is really fast and lens by itself have metal housing sealed good from dust and water.Comes with case and hood. if you are thinking about purchasing 70-200mm get F4.0!!! i tried both and 4.0 is newer and better!!! By the way in Low light works perfect! add some Iso And You are good!!! TOTALLY LOVE THIS ONE!!!
This is a lens with great image quality. You can use it wide open and still get great sharpness and smooth out of focus backgrounds. It is built very sturdy, but the manual focus is too stiff and turns too many degrees from infinity to MFD. The hood is flimsy, but it works. For **** dollars, you can't get much better optics. It is tough to focus correctly with my sony a700 but I have managed some outstanding shots. I will keep saving for an autofocus 85mm, but until then, this lens will do fine
