If you are looking for a cheap, lightweight zoom for film or FX this is excellent for the price. I can’t see any reason to buy the so-called ED version over this except for the metal mount and compatibility with my manual focus cameras. On my D70 I can hand-hold it fine down to about 1/125 at 300 mm, at which point only about 50% of my shots are clear. Light weight works against you here, since a heavier lens would do a better job of stabilizing the setup. If you stop it down a little or don’t zoom beyond 200 mm its images look the same as the $1,000 lenses. Just don’t expect it to last in heavy, daily professional abuse. “¦ READ FULL REVIEW
