Pros: Small, lighter in weight, fast AF, great IS
Cons:
Doesn't seem to take to CP filters, expensive

LIke many others I debated long and hard between this and the 300 f4 is. Once I decided I took more images on the travel and stealth side Than on the tripod, it was an easy choice.

Got Thursday last and have taken about 400 images. All outside in overcast gray to sunny and bright. Shot a St Paddys parade yesterday and call it the bliss of ignorance but this is an excellent lense. The amount of keepers blew me away.

Say what you like but I'm very happy with mine. Trying a cheap Hoya CP didn't return the results I expected. Not sure in a higher quality polarizer would do any better. But this is my only issue with the lense.
