Photography Blog reviewed the . They called it an “incredibly capable but also incredibly expensive telephoto zoom lens“. Here are some excerpts from their conclusion:
Auto-focusing proved to be both satisfyingly quick and very quiet, with the ability to manually override it and focus manually if required proving a nice touch.
