    Cons: Expensive, heavy

    Pros: Fantastic build and performance, fast AF, smooth operation

    Summary: This lens has been criticised for lack of sharpness but I have not found it to be the case. It's a fully professional lens which does the job it's designed to do. I never use it with a TC.

    Cons: - Maybe a bit heavy and expensive.

    Pros: - Sharp as a box of razors. - Built to last. - Stabilized.

    Summary: This is THE telephoto lens. It's near flawless. Stacks well with a 2x TC. 'Nuff said.
