IQ wise, this lens amazes me all the time. Weight wise, not so much. :tongue:
Out of curiousity, does the lens feel too big for a walk around lens to you?
To be honest, it doesn't feel too big with body alone (D200 for my case). But with the MB-D200, 70-200 VR, 18-35, SB800 and some spare AAs in the bag, I can't walk too far.
Walter....it looks to be a stunning walk around lens!
I love the first shot. The baby Burrowing Owl seems to think he's found his mother.
It sure is. Besides being sharp, I love the vibrant color it produces over my 70-200 VR.
Haha, that little owl actually looked more scared than happy.
I just acquired mine .. have yet to put it to test ..
For $1,700 it better be! Nice shots.
I just picked up a used one and can't wait to get around a bit. I had to ditch the Tammy 28-75 due to focus hunting issues so I hope I am blown away for the price of this one.
For its fast and silent AF, minimal distortion, color saturation and sharpness, IMHO, it worths every penny of mine. :wink:
My poor *** has to use the 28-70 for now.
It is a heavy beast but is it sharp or what?
Well I just got mine!
Didn't seem to heavy till I put it on the D300! UGH!
However, I used to carry the 80-200 everywhere...so why not this!
If I had the Beast already, I wouldn't even consider getting a 24-70.
Sharp indeed! Even wide open.
Well, if you are not complaining about the weight, we guys/boys should definitely not complain about it. :biggrin:
I'm not. I was wanting one, but I got a great deal on the beast. Now I can save up for other lenses I want.
it is a great walk around lens... just the way i used to keep the 17-55 on my D200 all the time
no real "reach"
but.... great IQ for every single image it takes
enjoy your 24-70... i sure do, mine
