Excerpt: Basically, in good light shooting wildlife there is nothing sharper than this lens at this price range. It's not easy to use well handheld, but once you get the hang of it persistently good results are achieved.
Pros: cheap, Extremely Sharp, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Summary: I bought this lens one year ago and have taken 1000s of photos with it. For the price, you would expect excellent focus and you get that along with a beautiful bokeh. It is light enough to handhold with some practice.
Keep practicing until you can make the lens perform like it's meant to - a best buy lens

Summary: I don't need to go on about this lens as everyone else has said - extremely sharp wide open - you need a tripod - you need to shoot fast shutter - gorgeous smooth bokeh - works well with a EX II tube in bright conditions - built to last the apocalypse - light weight relative to even the 70-200mm IS...
Excerpt: I bought this lens used from B&H and could not be more pleased. I chose it over the Sigma & Tamron 150-600mm zooms because of better image quality and highly positive reviews.

Summary: I bought this as a nice entry line lens for wildlife photography and am very happy. The color and contrast is amazing. The auto focus is very quick/quiet. And the build quality is superb. The only downside is the lack of image stabilization.
