Pros: Build quality, bokeh, sharpness, hsm
Cons:
weight

beautiful product. i am very glad to buy it. if i didn't buy this lens then i would surely go for 120-300 but it is so expensive for me. par with 70-200 L f4 may be better. it is sharp, fast hsm focusing. hard to handheld use but tripod fix it. i am completely disagree with softness issue the only problem should be uncalibrated product if you had sent it to sigma they would have fix that problem. so only problem is sigma quality management (maybe some bad copies but extremely rare) but they are fixing products and you will have full opportunities this lovely lens. as long as i could use it without shaking it produced good bokeh and good portraits at 100mm. 200mm or longer needs tripod or monopod otherwise impossible to take good photos. all in one great investment of money for mid range tele; extremely succesful optics to bargain price.
