Lens Description: Get the ability to cover the range from 70 to 200mm where much of the telephoto action occurs with G lens refinement and class. A constant f/2.8 aperture affords some significant photographic advantages, making it easier to create beautifully defocused backgrounds, but more importantly allows you to use faster shutter speeds to achieve equivalent exposure, making it possible to capture motion that might end up as a blur with a slower lens.
