A very pleasant surprise
8

I know this is an old lens but I picked one up recently for an unbelievable price. I was not expecting anything exceptional and did not really need the lens, however, experimenting with it during lockdown I have been blown away by the superb results from this lens. Being ancient, I still have the mindset that a tripod is essential for long zoom shots, not so with this lens, hand held in every experiment I tried the results were excellent. Well worth buying, I know there is a newer version of this lens but don’t write off this old guy.
