    "A gem...Not bad...Unlike other larger zoom lens where you loose some stability while taking pictures if you have zoom extended to maximum and quality of the pictures blur, this lens took excellent pictures, even in dimmer lighting....Took to beach on first day to just try it out...was happy when I got home to see what it could do....a very nice compliment to the 18-55 kit that came with my a3000."

    "love it...NOT BAD...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....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!...Ended up being my walking around lens for the most part - superb reach for everything from ant trail macros to village life-in-motion captures to water fowl to sunsets over the zambezi and even a blood moon, nicely rounded out w/ the 1.4X extender to bump me up to 560mm....I love the included tripod mounting foot & collar -- the lens is far too heavy to traditionally mount your camera base on the tripod, and leave the weight of the lens hanging from the lens-mount of the camera itself -- the mounting foot solves that -- you mount the lens to the tripod, and the much-lighter camera body hangs "from the lens"."

    "Nice lens...Great lens...great zoom lens for pictures.Best lens for cannon before stepping up to professional...Kinda pricy but worth it would be a excellent lens for side line sports shooters who have early evening games or late morning/early evening wild life shooters on a crop sensor body because as long as you keep the zoom range in the f4 aperature you'll still be able to keep a decent enough shutter speed for moving objects and it gives you the 1.6 magnification so your range will be better than that on a full frame."

    "Love it...Nice Lens...For extra reach, I often use the APS-C crop factor of 1.5 to extend the far range of the lens from 200 to 300mm (1.5x200), which is a nice feature for nature shots that I would have ordinarily cropped....The lens has increased the number of keepers that I get due to lens stabilization and auto focus."
