    Strengths:    price

    Weaknesses:    slooooow and noisy AF

    Bottom Line:   
    I got this some time ago at 50%. Optics are not to bad, as long as you stay away from the edges. Gets a little soft at 400 and wide open.

    Strengths:    very good quality bulid with high quality optics bing used. Good price

    Weaknesses:    at 400mm outer edges of photos are soft

    Bottom Line:   
    This is one very good high quality lens. The image sharpness of photos taken are outstanding at 100mm to 300mm. At 400mm the outer edges of the photos are a tad soft. Give a look at the Vivitar Series 1 lenes. They will not let you down.
