    "nice !...Not bad...It's a great step up from the kit lens (18-55mm) if you think you are interested in a telephoto lens but aren't ready to commit a ton of cash to it yet....I prefer this lens compared to the 70-300 because this lens has stabilization built in and because its a telephoto, you don't have to get really close to the subject and still get AMAZING quality."

    "NOT BAD...love it...This lens worked great my photo needs, but I am sure a higher end lens would allow me to shoot from even further distances while maintaining the focus and depth of field....I use it more than the normal lens that my camera came with, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to buy an additional lens for their camera."

    "Love it...Best one...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....It is my new goto lens.The photos from this lens are the best I have ever shot.If you are looking for a great lens get this one.My only regret is I had to buy this from amazon because best buy has not had it in stock for months."

    "Love it...Love it!...I've a fair collection of primes to compare it to, some of which are L glass, and I've got some great L zooms as well; yet for portraits, I inevitably turn to this specific lens as it outperforms everything else I own in the successful shooting methodologies I find myself returning to over and over....Frankly, at the price, I think it is perfectly fair to characterize this lens as a "must-have"; if you're ever going to shoot a portrait, trust me, this is the lens you want (even over the 85mm f/1.2L, which has far too narrow a depth of field for most reasonable portraiture, though you can't beat it for light-gathering."
