    Cons: The lenshood/\"lenscap\" is not the world\'s smartest invention, but it works and is robust. The color white may be suitable for the tropics, but around here (55 degrees north) heat is not a real problem, and the color is very visible when you are a bird. I\'ve create a camouflage dress for the lens. The AF may hunt when you are trying to focus on small objects in a visually complex environment (like a dragonfly in a field of grass). I\'m missing the AF/MF fast switch as the other PRO lenses have, but I worked around it by assigning a button at the house for the purpose.

    Pros: The picture quality is very, very good and compareable to my 300mm PRO. The extra reach from the 500mm makes the difference when you are going for shy animals. The built-in TC works smoothly and is easily accessible. The realitive lightweight of the lens makes a tripod obsolete, which is ideal for the long trails. You can easily shoot pictures at 500mm (1000mm FF equiv) handheld at 1/60s and still maintain a hight keep-rate.

    Summary: Are you serious about wild life photography? Then buy it! It is costly, agreed, but it is worth it. The flaws can be worked around, and you will eventually forget they are there.
