  • The difference between this and the previous case is that in the first case, you are increasing the depth of field by producing a merged file from several frames; in the latter case, you are selecting one file having the best focus on one scene element Ultimately…
  • The focus is fast in all light conditions…
  • We shoot a lot of action stuff so manual focus is not always possible…
  • If you're going on a trip, buy this gem! Pair it with a fast lens and you won't be disappointed…
  • The focus is quite fast ( for such a large lens…
  • Easy to use, fast and quick focus, excellent picture…
    Acc (Bhphotovideo.com) - November 2016
  • The recent upgrade with post focus feature is very good, just take a steady shot…
  • The image stabilisation for photos works wonders, coupled with an IS lens it works for video very well as well…
  • There's also great aids when manual focusing, like focus peaking…
  • Complete package with a great kit lens to take on your holiday trips…
