Pros: Great Color / Weight (Light) / Fast Focus Speed / Build Quality
Cons:
Not 2.8

I have had this lens for 6 months and I could see the difference between this one and the kit lens right away. The colors were better and bolder. Focusing is very fast. Great for wildlife shots and some sports. I would have loved the 2.8 for the lower light situations. For sports I would recommend a 300mm or 400mm. I took some pictures at a Mets game and could not get close enough for most of the field. I have a 1.6 crop so if you have Full Frame this won't be long enough of a zoom. Of course I was not sitting where the Pro's sit. If you have credentails for sporting events or you can get close, you will have outstanding shots. I have used this for wildlife and it's good. Birds come out great if you are within 20 feet or so. If I had the money I would have gotten the 100-400mm. This lens is great for outdoor portraits of family or friends. If your limited with money and you want telephoto zoom "L" glass, then you should consider this lens.
