Pros: light, very light, fast focus, very good build quality
Cons:
a bit softer then others in this price range, you need to be careful under certain light conditions

Have owned this lens for now about 10 months and have to say it is worth every penny. The main advantage and that is why it is unique is the weight of this lens and a good image quality which outperforms any other none L lens I know. IS is first generation but haven't had any problems handhold shooting of sport events.

One thing you need consider this lens is difficult if light is coming from the direction where you are shooting. Even some mirrored light could cause degradation of image quality. But if you get used to this you can shoot excellent pictures which would not be as easy as with the 2.8/400 as an example.

Probably I will never sell this lens and if you look there are not much used ones on the market, so there seems to be something unique with this lens.
