Well made, but a little soft

Excerpt: I was impressed with the construction of this unit. It was solid, albeit a bit heavy, and operated smoothly. Auto-focus and image stabilization worked well. Image quality was quite sharp from 120mm - 300mm, but then got a bit soft from there out to 400mm.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: It seemed to be a "higer quality" lens than a kit lens.... Tested it out in different lighting situations. The image stablization was great though. However, I've had kit lenses with better image quality out the box.It also had really bad zoom creep that I could not deal with.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Image stabilization, Rugged, Strong Construction, Well Balanced Weight
Summary: Purchased this knowing that it's a value-priced and performance item. Used specifically to shoot for just ONE customer - pro baseball team. It's a little soft at the wide apertures and in the corners, but again - a great value for this sort of lens.
Summary: Purchased this lens after going in the store to buy the Canon 100-400 zoom. Had great build quality and I wasn't crazy about the push pull zoom system of the Canon, not to mention is is a lot cheaper. Well, you dont get something for nothing. I bought this for wildlife photography.
Summary: I was excited to get this new Lens I have to say overall even with the issues I had with it I like the pictures it took and the Feel of it but right out of the box it was not working I was gettting Error "F" meaning the Lens was not connecting with the camera and it got worse as I used it more.
Excerpt: This lens appears to be constructed very well. The zoom and focus rings work nicely - not too tight or loose. The included carrying case, straps, and lens hood are also appreciated. The lens performance, however, is not all that great.
