One has to love them. I'd actually give it a better rating for portraits, try it with a 300mm 2.8, it's stunning......and although it made it's name for sports, I honestly think the AF can show it's age sometimes. And even though the pixels are lovely and VAST, some more of the them would really help with croppability.

Still, they are amazing for the money.

Here's one with my D3, Nikon 300mm f2.8 AF-S + TC14E.  I rated the shot at 400 ISO, as I needed the extra speed to compensate for the TC. Hand held. Taken in Cambodia at Angkor Wat.

All the best ,
