Pros: Sharp even with the Sigma 2xTC attached. A dream come true, no problem of any kind on my 1DIII, 5DII and 7D. Right on the money. You can see my photos at the Canon Forum (not the official, but the other one)
Cons:
Nothing, maybe just a bit heavy for my aging arms. However, I use a monopod if I need to stand a lot, otherwise, I will just carry it.

This is the one lens that satisfied me after trying others, including the Canon 100-400/5.6, the Canon 300/4, and the classic Sigma 100-300/4(no OS). This lens is sharp and great AF. Depending on the camera, the focusing was different, for example on the 1DIII, the focussing depended on what you were going to do. For example for birding on the 7D, I just use the center point and voila, no missing anything. I am glad I purchased this lens. It is the only Sigma lens that has gone up in price after discontinued. You cannot find it new for less than $2,750. You can find used one for less, but beware of those. Buy this lens if you can.
