Product Description

This compact ultra telephoto zoom lens covers a range up to 500mm and optimized for digital SLR cameras. The multi-layer lens coating and lens design reduces flare and ghosting. This lens uses one aspherical lens and three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements for excellent correction all types of aberration, resulting in better picture quality on both film and digital SLRs.

Strengths:    It's strengths include ideal for getting that extra bit closer to the subject (like wildlife) without making the wildlife subject run or fly away.

Weaknesses:    Like any long zoom range a tripod or monopod is best to get the best results.

Bottom Line:   
I got my 170-500mm lens back at the beginning of August 2010 for the purpose of wildlife, aviation and general outdoor photography.
