so has anyone zoom ring loosen up yet. I have used mine for thousands of photos so far but the zoom ring is still really tight. Was hoping it would loosen up some by now. Thats probably the only thing I dont like about it is how tight the zoom ring is makes it difficult to go in and out fast

Mine is still tight. Cannot detect any noticeable loosening.

I'm happy enough with mine tight, otherwise I might be complaining about zoom creep. Although they can be light-locked at the main focal lengths, a good practical feature.

I did notice that if the firmware updates on the lens it will wipe out any MFA that you may have made in camera. Had to set 70D back to +3 on the 600 end. 6D needs no adjustment, so no problem there.

I didnt even know this. I just checked and saw that it has wiped it back to 0. I did the update like day it came out. I am guessing thats why some of my shots have not been tack sharp. Luckily DPP will show you MA value of the lens set so I just looked at an image I knew was set and got my value again.

Mine has a bit and is creeping more since starting to use it with a sling and always have the lens pointing down at 30-40 degrees.

First time out with the lens in ages, I forgot just how much reach there is! Off to Antarctica in less than a month so very much looking forward to a full outing there.

views on OS ?
The lens i have just bought is a second hand one with no instructions.
I was wondering what position to put the OS switch in when using it on a tripod or beanbag ?
I know there are three positions so am i correct in thinking there is Off. 1, for general use, and 2, for tripods/beanbags etc ?

OS1 is standard compensates for horizontal and vertical movement. OS2 is for panning shots. for using on tripod turn it off. it will make the image worse. on a beanbag where you will still have some movement probably from your hand holding it I would use OS1

I've never liked the panning option on any telephoto lens I've had.
