Overall I am pleased and I got what I paid for.
Mid level photographer in TX
This thing is heavy, and it is a beast, but once you get used to it, you begin to learn tricks on how to handle it. First, I got a Manfroto monopod and carbon fiber Tripod with a ballhead that could handle weight up to 22 lbs (this lens and my Mark IV come to about 15 lbs). I found that you have to be careful at all times when carrying this lens or mounting it, make sure you hold it with both hands and don't take a chance on dropping it or mismounting it! When walking long distances, I usually keep the monopod on it and I carry it upside down by the handle, then switch hands as I get tired of holding it, been able to walk up to 10 miles this way.
If I am on level surfaces then I have found a cart comes in handy to wheel it with me along with other lenses so I can be prepared for any photo opportunity.
This lens is not for the faint of heart, it is big big big, keep that in mind, but if you can handle the weight and the size, then it is a must, if you can't handle the weight, there are still creative ways to tote this around, you will figure it out. It is not a lens you can just whip out and start taking pictures of birds with, you have to find a place, mount it, and be still, let the birds come to you. Whereas, if you are using a 300mm 2.8, or 4.0 you do have the option of pulling it out while you are hiking to track just about anything. By the way, my hummingbird pics are off the chart, perfectly frozen wings at a dead stop with crystal clarity, most beautiful hummingbird pics I have seen!
The images I took this last weekend just made me think to myself, "Wow, this was easily worth the $7,000 dollars I paid for it, i got National Geographic quality images." I took it to the local Zoo, rented one of their wagons for kids, put the camera in it and just strolled along, when I saw something I wanted a pic of i just expanded my monopod, whipped it out, and shot away. I was also surprised that no one really bothered me, which I liked, I didn't have people come up to me saying, "Wow, thats a big lens, what are you taking a picture of?" That would annoy me to no end!
