    I had it's predecessor the 35-350 and it took WONDERFUL photos!

    Keep in mind the weight! It is NOT a lightweight lens!

    remember that its one of those kinds of lenses where you mount the CAMERA to the LENS!
    Mount the LENS on the tripod!


    Have fun!

    Definitely "…. I mount the lens on the tripod whenever I can saves strain on the mount ring and the tripod boss
    A new tripod /lens mount ring is cheaper than a new lens/and or camera
    Rem to ensure that your tripod is up to the extra weight and where you can set lens over leg for stability

    I have the 70-200 f 2.8. You will never regret having it in your bag. Watersealed, very durable, super sharp, reasonably fast, and flexible for many different missions.

    Others may disagree, but I think optical quality and speed are more important in longer lenses versus wider lenses that are more likely to be used for landscapes. When a longer lens is on the camera one is likely shooting something farther away that will require a deeper crop in post.

    Anyway, if you only have one L lens, this is the one to have. Be careful... you'll want more.
