    Cons: Poorly designed Tripod collar, no way to attach shoulder strap.

    Pros: Sharp, fast AF on a NIKON D700 and 800. Very easy to work with and carry. For the first time in over 20 years I now leave my NIKKOR AFD 80-200 f2.8 sitting at home.

    Summary: Love this lens, works great for me. I'm not a professional sports shooter, but for senior figure skating it works great on my D700's and 800's

    Cons: -AF speed slower than Canon F2.8 300mm prime -Weight...but there is plenty of glass -No IS (but the newer version has it...)

    Pros: -Sharpness from F3.2> -The only F2.8 120-300 zoom out there for Canon -Versatility, Bokeh at F2.8 -Takes extenders well -Well formed+solid tripod/monopod ring which can be used for carrying the lens+camera combination -Solid build -Value for money

    Summary: Versitily sharp zoom for reasonable price. Just not for serious action sports due to limited AF speed.
