Lee, Manchester

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
All in one carry zoom for static or slow moving objects.
Bad points:
Bought to replace my heavy 80-400mm VR AD-S zoom. Most of my shots are fast moving and all but a handful came out sharp at 300mm everything else were either soft or out of focus. I used it on a bright day at iso100 f8 film speed 100 (because I like the blurry background) nothing came out sharp so I changed to iso200 f5.6 film speed 160 and this is where a handful of shots were useable but still not sharp. My 80-400 has no such problems even shooting down to film speed 60 or lower in some cases and for this reason it was returned to where I purchased the lens. Maybe I got a bad one,or maybe it's just not good enough for what I want it for. I've had cameras since 1983 when I bought my first 35mm camera and I've had some bad lens choices and this is one of them.

Ian, Auckland Bit of a perfectionist

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent detail resolution and rich tonal quality under optimum use conditions. Quality falls off at the limit of zoom around 250-300mm. Not without its limitations but probably the best 10x zoom I have ever used. If you only want to carry one lens with you, this is the one to choose.
Bad points:
Heavy and adds a lot of awkward weight to the camera body. The "stay-put" zoom doesn't always and tends to creep if pointed downwards. Some noticeable barrel distortion at times although this can be corrected in editing software. Some vignetting noticeable in a smooth expanse such as a blue sky. Again can be corrected.

Mark, Peterborough

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
If you hate changing lenses or carrying lots of lenses around, then this is an excellant compromise. The zoom range enables you to capture those opportunity shots without having to worry about missing the action by an untimely lens swap.
Bad points:
It is a bit on the heavy side if you carry it around all day whilst travelling
