Any shots of people involved with sports? How does it handle a long sequence?

No sports yet, but it did a hell of a job tracking a fast little Dachshund through high grass at dusk

I hadn't focused on the fact that was a full bore Dachshund in the gathering dusk. They are sure bouncy critters, and she/he seems to be running directly at you which can be challenging. Really looks promising. Hope it is because I really need 300mm but can't be limited to a prime.

Did a nice job on the little guy but I can't wait to see someone running towards the camera and while strong back lighting going on.

I am surprised that a week has gone by and reviews are still very scarce. I did see some comparisons to the 200-400 in the Canon forum but that is really all.

Anyone?

You want some sports shots, there you go, no touch up whatsoever, only been cropped, JPEGs right out of my Nikon D4

I'm mostly playing with it on the new USB dock and Optimization Pro software -- I can say that if you get the new lens, then absolutely, definitely get the dock and software. It's way too cool for school.

Just playing with the AF Speed customization (for speed, don't ask me about accuracy) near to infinity focusing is 0.92 seconds in standard mode, 1.1 seconds in 'smooth' mode, and 0.65 seconds in 'fast mode'.

Plus you can microfocus adjust for 4 different focusing distances at 4 different zoom settings. There's an OS customization, too, but reading what they describe the different settings as, I have no idea what they mean.

But you get to set the C1 and C2 switches to custom settings of AF speed and OS type. So for AF speed at least you could have C1 as fast and C2 as 'smooth'. I have no idea, and they don't say, whether smooth might be more accurate in difficult conditions, but it would seem logical it would.
