Pros: It is remarkably sharp and the the AF is very fast.
Cons:
It's white. Can draw unwanted attention to your gear. The mounting ring cannot be removed with the lens connected to the camera body.

Have had this lens for about 3 weeks now. Have over 500 shots, mostly at sporting events. I think I will never take this lens off of my camera body. It is remarkably sharp and the the AF is very fast. I opted for this lens over the F4 because most venue lighting is poor. The F/2.8 also provides that hard to get bokeh. I have steady hands and about 75% of my shots are done on a monopod so I never opted for the IS lens. I paid $1,100 with the instant rebates and mail in rebates. Overall I give this lens a 9.8.
