As expected the lens is the cat's meow. Yes, it is both heavy and expensive but you get what you pay for. I can hand hold for a little while and then looking to switch hands, look for something to prop myself against or rest the lens on.

I bought this lens to shoot sports and events. I have found that there are situations where my 200 f2.8 just does not have the reach I need to get the shot. I had the 200-400 zoom to cover these situations but the lens was to big to be practical a lot of the time.

I purchased this lens last summer even though there were very few reviews available. I am happy to read the other reviews as it helps justify this expensive purchase. I choose this lens over the other Nikon lenses such as the 600F4, 400F2.8, and 500F4 because (1) it is cheaper, and (2) definitely...

Fantastic Lens! Extremely Sharp! Fast Focus!Most Important for my recent purchase over $5K is Cameta Camera HONESTY! I trust their product description will be the same product I received. Yes I will order from them again.
