150-500
Review Date: Jul 23, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $979.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: 500mm - Hand held - Build - HSM - under 1K
Cons:
none

At the end of the day - for under 1K - you get an lens with 500mm - HSM with OS which can be hand hold - I'm not sure about other lenses in this focal range in regardless of price that you can do that - which brings to mind the real strength of this lens that I don't hear mentioned much - most will wish it will be an f/4 or sharper etc - if all those wishes comes true - then the last thing to wish for is the ability to hand hold which this lens already offer.

Here are some shots taken after two days of 'playing' around with this new lens: http://flickr.com/photos/jkwebzone/
