This lens is heavy, but if you carry it fully extended cradled in your arms, or attached to a monopod, the weight is less of an issue.
One caveat: this is a push/pull to zoom lens and, in dusty environments, can suck dirt into the lens and body. Avoid playing accordion with it (excessive fast zooming in and out). take care of it and it will take care of you!
As a bonus, I took it to my son's graduation. I was way up in the stands, he was down in the field, but I have plenty of close-up shots of him and his friends. Took some really great pictures with this and my Canon T31.
The one drawback is how heavy it is. I have to use a tripod or monopod with it at all times because it is too heavy to hold steady. Likewise, it is hadrd to aim quickly during a game because of its weight.
Overall I am getting great results for what I need with this lens. It is making me look like a much more experienced photographer than I actually am.
The push-pull zoom for this lens is a little weird to get used to, but it's now second nature. The IS feature features two modes, one for panning and one for static objects. For me, it helps with "shaky hands" because of the weight of this lens. In fact, if you're going to be shooting an event with this, get a support (monopod, bean bag, your kid's head, etc) for it.
This lens is a light hog and not that fast compared to the speedier prime lenses. When I shoot soccer games, I notice the pros with 300 f/2.8 or better lenses. Well, since I'm not a pro nor do I make any money from my photos, I have to make the best of what I can afford, and this is it. Even when shooting a friend's kid's ice skating event, I was able to take awesome images in the relative dark with a fast shutter speed and higher ISO without issues.
I had the 70-300mm lens before and I thought it was awesome until I borrowed a friend's 100-400. The difference in the quality of the images is just breathtaking. Like a previous reviewer, I screwed up by not investing in this lens earlier. It's a workhorse that has traveled with me everywhere. Sure, it's heavy, but it's an amazing piece of hardware that needs to be part of every serious photographer's arsenal of lenses.
