Pros: It's just over half the cost of the new Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM!!!
Cons:
Long Minimum Focus Distance, makes my Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II Lens seem loud and slow.

I absolutely love this thing! I could and would have liked to have held out for the IS version but would have been missing out for a long time (at least a year, or longer considering what prices are doing). My primary subject is our 14 month old that is just starting to walk and the majority of my blurred shots are due to subject movement that IS wouldn't have prevented anyway.

It could stand to focus closer but unless you're going for a macro shot framing dictates backing up anyway.

I did purchase a center pinch Promaster lens cover due to it being next to impossible to remove and replace the Canon version that comes with it when the hood is in place.
