    "5 stars...good len...The photos at 500mm are sharp....If you compared this to the 5 or 600 nikon prime which is almost the cost of a car this lens isn't as sharp, but it's 1399 not 13000.00... Buy it you will be happy with it The only reason it got 4 starts is from the weight and the inability to use the 5.6 on a crop body and I have had 2 copies and it'sn't a defective lens...do your research on this lens."

    "Love it...Love it!...It is crisp, clear and responds nicely....I really enjoy the close-focusing capability of this lens (ie, how close to your subject you can be, and still achieve focus.) In many ways, it performs like a macro lens that way, letting you fill much of the frame with a closer subject and blur out the background pretty decently."

    "LOve it...Love it!...Awesome for people learning photography!!...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)."
