Pros: Build, reach, OS.
Cons:
Weight! Small aperture and no focus limiter

I pick up a new 150-500 which arrived last week. Unlike earlier versions it has a new finish. The OS works superbly. The reach is amazing. I do need practice using a long lens. The longest I have used is a Tamron 70-300 OS on my Canon 7D.

The build is excellent. The focus ring is smooth and the zoom ring is quickly becoming comfortable. There were times when I wished for a focus limiter but it is easy to pre-focus a bit to compensate.

Larger subjects are sharp! even at 500. Small subjects can be tricky. Still testing and waiting for a bright day to judge color and contrast better.

Overall, an excellent value.
