Review Date: Apr 7, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Range, L-Quality, PP Zoom, IS
Cons:
Weight, PP Zoom, Price, positions of switches,

I bought this lens as used, and am very happy with it, shooting at Wildlife and other dirtant abject is a feast with this lens, even with low light conditions, this lens still manages well thanks to IS,

sometimes the switches manage to switch to other positions, you have to check them every now and then.

the PP zoom design has pros in versality, I can zoom fast from 100 to 400 and back. the con is the fact that air is sucked in, you will need to clean the lens every now and then.

overall It is a good lens that is sharp but not as sharp as a Prime or a 70-200 F4 or 70-200 F2.8, but still a good buy
