Pros: Perfect for my interests in photography which consists of butterflies and backyard birds
Cons:
The price

I love this lens. It help kick me out of the photography doldrums shooing with the 100-400. With this lens, and added teleconconverters, there is just no comparison. I evaluated the 500 f4 and for my needs the 300 was much more practical and I would say sharper than than the 500. This lens is now my workhorse lens with my 100-400 to be retired. Another great capability for is the ability to take pictures in low light. Rarely are the butterflies I shoot in some wide open field with bright light; rather they are on a plant with much darker background behind them. I highly recommend this lens
