Strengths: All you could want from a 70-200 2.8 - period. Sturdy and strong. Just solid. Price.
Weaknesses: Focus can zoom in and way out when you are in autofocus. Just boom -out of no where. Compared to the Canon 2.8 equivalent (which I borrowed) It is a slight bit off. You will have to work hard to get sharper images.
This is my main glass for sports, since it was my first purchase for shooting HS Sports. I have used it with the Rebel and 40D.
This lens is simply great for the price and is great for almost all sports. For the beginner, intermediate or casual shooter, you can not get a better lens for the price. I have used it for all high school sports. I would recommend using a monopod.
Was great for flowers, and wildlife that you can get close to - ducks, swans, frogs, certain birds.
