    I'm planning to buy one in the next two weeks and just looking for some opinions if anyone has one.

    Thanks,

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I heard good things about it... but a few not so good things as well.

    - You need a lot of light for it to get good pics
    - Not the best walk around lens, if thats what you plan to use it as.
    - Definately a tripod only lens... very hard to get clear pics with no motion blur without a tripod on the long end.

    Hi Jerry,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I took it to the Zoo a couple of weekends ago and used it hand held all day. It was a bright day so I just bumped the camera's ISO up to 1600. A bit of a crazy way to do it but it did the trick anyway :)

    Here is an example...

    I took a few low light shots at the weekend in my garden, a dull overcast day, but I haven't put them on the PC yet... if you interested I'll let you know how they turned out.

    Cheers!
