Review Date: Feb 8, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Its all good. Believe the hype......
Cons:
The lens hood will take a bit of getting used to.

Very seldom will something in life live up to your expectations, especially when its as hyped as this famous piece of glass.

But this lens, quite simply, did just that - and more.

I can shoot away at f2.8 wide open and know that the subject will be critically sharp, whilst rendering the background into the mother of all buttery bokehs.

I have a lot of good glass, mainly "L" stuff, but this stands out as something really, really special. Oh, and initial tests suggest that it does indeed give a very sharp 840mm with stacked TC's, with negligible image degradation.
