Ordered this lens on the 24th got it on the 25th so very happy with the P&P.
The lens it's self is very nice, very speedy AF motor , the Macro is amazing really picks out key deatail. The motor is a bit louder than say a Nikon lens but not by a lot. I would just like to say thanks to Microglobe with their great service, I got 4 emails telling me everything about my order and where it was. So thank you and keep up the good service. Charlotte

Already had the 70-300 AF macro but should have bought the APO in the beginning.Glad I did'nt because I have the latest APO with the HSM feature, not had long enough to give a definitive review but having had a short pratice with it it performs very well and is everything I expected having already had it cheaper but nevertheless exceptional brother, and this one comes with a rather good case!!!Will give it some serious use soon and hopefully I will review again with better comments.
Microglobes price abd excellant delivery is also a good reason to purchase this great lense.
