This top-class telephoto lens, which is resistant to spray and dust, is made of a magnesium alloy and is thus both robust and relatively lightweight. It can be used without problems in bad weather or under difficult climate conditions. The premium technical equipment minimises aberration and ensures a high resolution and sharp focus with beautiful bokeh. The image stabilisation system allows for taking shots without a tripod. With this potential, the lens is well suited to sports and nature photography.
