Took the new 600 MKII to Prime Hook on Saturday. I was staying in Rehoboth Beach which was a short drive. Saw ospreys, Eagles, Harriers, etc etc. The Ospreys presented the best opportunity to test the lens.
All shots were hand-held with a 1.4 MKIII. I left my tripod in the car because I wanted to see if I could hand-hold it as well as I did with my 500.
It actually felt a little lighter because of the weight distribution. It is a little bulkier than the 500.
I got used to the 3rd mode IS pretty quickly, especially since I use back button focus. Keeping my finger on the shutter to activate the IS was no problem.
All in all I am very happy with the new lens.
