positive:It’s the lightest lens that gives a range of 100-400mm, image quality is sharp throughout
But losses a tiny bit at 400mm not that significant.
negative:Slow AF and needs a bright day for good results
comment:I will never replace it unless they come up with a brighter lens which is not heavier.

It has given me some fantastic results.
