Did not get the USB dock and don't tink it's needed, speed slightly slower than my 70-200 MkII with and w/o the TCs mounted (SWAG), accuracy is outstanding both stationary and tracking...have not needed to use the limiter yet. I've found no focus shift based on distance or focal range, dialed +4 wide and +4 Tele bare (all my L glass is in the same range) It is heavy, very heavy but balances well with a 1D body.
Certainly nothing to whine about in those pix! I'm seriously considering this lens to supplement my 70-200 f/2.8L II as 200mm just doesn't reach across the field or to the fence. If you get a chance, I'd really appreciate it if you'd post some lower light action shots and give your feelings on its AF, acquisition speed, and anything else.
I shoot and report sports for a (very) small town newspaper. Every football field in the league is dark, darker, darkest and let's not even talk about the gyms The 70-200 does OK though f/2.8 is generally at least a stop, stop and a half too dark. FB and BB both need more reach.
As for heavy, shrug, if you're toting a 1D anything (and I sometimes work 2), it's all in the mind. (At least that's what I tell myself at the end of 2.5 hour night game in 100F + degrees
Would really appreciate feedback/assessment from anyone using this lens for action in low or bad light.
