1) This lens doesn't have a very large aperture, so it's not meant for low-light conditions. Your exposure time needs to go up. Not necessarily the fault of the lens, but if you expect to take some quick exposures in shadows, you'll have to bump up the ISO.
2) This is not a silent motor. It makes some noise, so if you're out to shoot some wildlife, you might want to go into manual mode.
3) Speaking of the auto-focus, this one has a hard time focusing on the exact object that you want. This could just be due to how close I was getting to them, but I've been closer with my Nikon lenses and haven't had this issue.
4) The speed of the auto focus isn't as quick as Nikon and even if you're already focused on your subject, it likes to recalibrate itself, so don't expect this to be a zippy lens.
5) When you're focused properly, the images are very sharp. I have no complaints about the quality of the image.
6) The macro feature is great! At first, I didn't realize you needed a minimum of 200mm to switch it on, so that took some getting used to.
7) The lens is a little heavy and will require a tripod if you zoom in, but if you're going 200mm+ you should be using a tripod anyways.
I would have loved to give this lens 5 stars, but the quality and speed of the auto focus and leaves a bit to be desired. I would absolutely recommend this and I actually have recommended it to a friend who has a Canon. I don't regret my purchase at all!
One significant problem with this lens is the zoom drift. If you're shooting at angles greater than 20 degrees up or down, the zoom tends to drift on its own because of the weight of the front elements. In astrophotography, I frequently shoot at steep angles. I solved the drift problem by taping the ring in place once I acquire my desired focal length.
You really get what you pay for, but if you're willing to put in some extra effort, you can get some pretty great shots with this lens.
