    This lens has to be one of the bargains on sale at the moment and I’m
    Glad that I purchased it after the newer (image stabilized) version came out.
    It is really great at F2.8 at 70-100m. At 200mm it is very good as well.
    I recently took some photos of the moon with a 55-300mm Nikon and this
    Lens. The resolution was far better even without the reach of the Nikon.
    Granted the Nikon is half the price and still a good lens.
    The macro ability is the cream on the top as no other 70-200mm f2,8
    Lens can focus this close. Along with my Nikon 35mm F1.8G this is my
    Best lens.
