I think this is the lense i'm gonna buy next. I would like to go for one of Canons but to get the equivelent focal length i would be paying a lot more.
Has anyone got this lens and have a opinium on it? Has anyone heard of any bad points to do with it? And the BIG question....Should i leave it and sell the kids to buy a Canon lense?? :-)

I have had this lens for about a year ... it's hardly off my camera (do a lot of wildlife photography) ... couldn't live without it ... don't worry about the weight, you'll get used to it.
Cheers,
Jim
