    "Worth it...Great lens...However, I would still buy this lens again, given the alternatives that exist for the Fuji X-T2 camera....The only downside to this lens, despite it's very affordable price, is that it's made of plastic, so it might not be able to put up with being banged around too much, so it's probably not as durable as some of its more expensive siblings (like the 55-200 or 50-140), but if you're looking for a good budget zoom for your Fuji camera, this is certainly worth looking at and considering, especially given it's lower price point."

    "Great buy...Very nice...I bought this lens over the f2.8 and saved $1000 and I find it to be every bit as capable....The 100-400 II may give you more reach but it is a daylight/outdoors/safari lens only - this one will give you available light options which is more important to me ultimately."

    "A gem...Love it...I have not gotten a chance to play with this a lot yet, but I am excited about the zoom options it will give me as the zoom on the NEX-6 itself does not zoom very far....this is not a bad lens a little better then the kit lens, if your gonna spend 350$ on this you should just pay a couple more 100 to get the g lens, unless this is your budget, does a good job and focus is quick, but at max zoom its not at clear."

    "love it...NOT BAD...I would definately recomend this lens if you need a decent telephoto lens, I would also recomend a tripod since it can be a bit tricky to get a clear shot since the lens lacks IS....This is a good zoom for beggining.Good image quality in outdoors.Best if used with a tripod or monopod.There is no image stablizer so the futher you zoom the steadier the camera has to be.On the plus side with it being an EF lens you can buy an inexpensive teleconverter and double your zoom.All in all a good lens for being part of a package."

    "Love it...Love it!...I was searching for a replacement to my Nikon camera/lens combo- I love the clarity of this lens- however, I am slightly disappointed in the range- My Nikon 70-300 was able to take much better pictures of the players on the baseball field- I cannot get on the field and the reach of the 70-200 lens is just not enough....This zoom with a 1.4x III teleconverter will get me to approximately the same place for less money (perhaps with a slight loss in optical quality, but a gain in versatility)."

    "In love...Love it...It is a good quality lands, however I did not realize that it does not provide a lot of clarity when shooting/photographing something or someone at a distance greater than 30 feet I later learned that you need a 200 mm product that can do this which I will be getting...This lens is amazing, a store employee recommended it to me because I communicated that I wanted to do nighttime videography and this lens is great with bringing in light that is available."

    "LOve it...Love it!...If used with an APS-C sensor, the zoom on this lens is an effective 80mm, making it adequate for many macro shots, but also functional enough for most portraits, although for the latter, I would prefer a 40mm lens (although the 40mm lens isn't as wide of an aperture at f/2.8 so I would not recommend it over the 50mm if you can only buy one)....I am always been a fan of wide-angle lenses when touring museums or aircraft on display getting a lot in one picture while close up this lens did a good job focusing and produced excellent pictures."
