    Cons: The very fragile lens hood, which fractured the very first day, so replaced by a metal screw-in hood from Amazon. A bit front-heavy, maybe.

    Pros: Weather-resistant, internally focusing, no focus-pumping, takes Sigma TC-1401 with ease, is lightweight, and gives great results. Bullet-proof, in short.

    Summary: A lot of lens for a rather low price!

    Cons: Could have better color / contrast Some ghosting when shooting into bright lights Some aberrations when paired with teleconverters

    Pros: Extremely sharp Fast and accurate auto focus Very portable Feels professional (except for lens hood) VR works great on D750 and D7200

    Summary: This lens is always in my bag with the TC-14EIII teleconverter.
