My first outing today with this lens. Wow, this is a lovely lens. My copy is sharp as a tack at all focal lengths, even at 200mm f 2.8.

It is a great lens!

Focusing with my D300 is spot on and very fast.

The racing pics above are from the RAW, no adjustment at all for colors or sharpness. Only two adjustments are a little fill light and slight crop. Nothing else whatsoever.

These came out really well, especially with the sun overhead; second horse is particularly good.

Last B&W shot is cropped and Silver Efex, I did no other adjustments, great subject isolation it gives.

Love this B&W Lots of atmosphere.

Only thing is now.......too easy to get sharp photos with this without PP...it sets a new standard for me...so I am going to get even more picky now about any more lenses to match this one.... ;-

This is a lovely lens that is also very versatile.

I wonder if it will capture some of that white sand and blue sea I miss so much!
