Was hoping for a 100-400 mkii by now...have heard very 'mixxed' reviews on that one.
Mixed reviews on the 100-400L bascially go:
Wow that's a great lens
Wow that's an excellent lens
Wow, this is a wonderful lens
Most of the others are bogus, unless they specifically got a dud, and then you shouldn't be wriitng reviews until it's fixed.
Nearly all the bad press for this lens is traced back to a Luminous Landscape article many years ago, that showed the 400 f/5.6L trouncing it. Based on their massive sample, size of one, it became internet folk lore that 100-400L was crap.
Some claim lenses built after 2005 seem to have better QC and IQ, but whether or not this is true 100-400L is IMO best all round semi-budget wildlife/close-up lens you can get.
