Pros: Looks cool and make you feel important.
Cons:
Not up to the hype everyone says it is.

I rented a perfectly good 70-200 2.8 IS to shoot my kid's championship football game, I also burrowed a tele-extender for the occassion. Body attached to is Canon 10D. I got better results using my $300 70-300 4.5 lens. The speed of the 2.8 was great, but I did not get 1 image out of 500 that did not require sharpening or some type of editing. A few others commented on similar problems like this and I stand behind them as proof, this lens is not worth the money.
