Pros: Great Image Quality - Fast Focusing - Customize Performance With Optional USB - Very Small Drop In IQ w/Sigma 1.4TC - It's a Nikon 70-200 VRII on Steroids - I Think Skin Tones Are More Natural Than any Nikon Lens I've used.
Cons:
It's heavier than the 200-400 f4 that I used prior to the Sigma - and harder to balance on a monopod. +1 on the comments about lens hood - great in use but stopped carrying it reversed on the lens as I didn't want to chance scratching the body of the lens

The finish should do a great job protecting the camera and the lens glass is a pretty as any other lens I've seen.

I thought the camera & lens combination would be similar in handling to the camera and the Nikon 200-400 f4 VR but it really wasn't close. I think I'll try another mounting foot for it

Almost forgot - on a Nikon body your focusing is reversed
