Pros: Light enought to hand hold, Awesome on monopod. OS is Amazing. Sharp even with Extenders (stepped down even sharper!) Works great on crop but better on FF . Much better finish than older models
Cons:
Needs focus limiter. hunts a bit at low light but not bad. Needs water resistancy

Bought a used (3 weeks old! :-) for a good price. Very versatile lens and I do not regret getting it over the prime 300. Works very well with Extenders and stepped down the IQ is spectacular. Only have VII of the Canon Extenders and would like to try it with a VIII one day. AF is quick and of course much slower with the 2X but that is to be expected. Untouchable for sports and Birds. Wished it was better water sealed but the lenscoat keeps it clean looking.
I have the OS verion and it is heads and shoulders above the older non OS including the DG models.
Finish is great and build is solid. A great pick for those who want the range Plus IS of the Canon 300 without the price.
highly recommend and a 10 years warranty is all good
