Pros: Size, weight, overall performance
Cons:
Wish it were "faster"

Took this lens with me on an Antarctica trip, coupled to a 70D most of the time, and found the combination excellent. The equivalent focal length of 90-400 was perfect for picking out subjects from a bobbing Zodiac, and the weight was never an issue climbing in and out of the boat. Very impressed with the results from this unheralded little gem. I have also heard that the previous non-STM is just as good optically. Do not hesitate in trying this out, and ignore whatever you may hear about the plastic mount - it works and functions beautifully.
