I received mine yesterday. Haven't had much time to test it, and our weather is crazy, but o far I'm not felling the mega buck love... I've been shooting it almost exclusively at 560mm with my 5D3, so it's not a fair comparison, but I'm not having near the success that I have with my 100-400 in similar situations. The 200-400 was front focusing a little so I took a quick stab at correcting that, but I still didn't have a whole lot better luck today.
I'm sure that part of the problem is the size and weight of the 200-400, but I've been using a monopod most of the time. I can wield my 100-400 around hand held like a toy, but the 200-400 is a different story...
Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm heading to the race track tomorrow for four days, so I'll get plenty of chance to test it then.
