Thanks! We've got lots of rain happening in New England at the moment so I haven't had a proper test yet.

First impressions from my living room are fantastic, brilliantly sharp wide open at high iso, and for grins I gave it a go with my 2x version iii on my 5div and was even more surprised to not only have center point AF but the full spectrum of horizontal center AF points.

Took the 300 hiking today. Wasn't that impressed with this shot until I zoomed in on the center of the flower.

This is my favorite hiking around lens, I don't think I'd appreciate a 70-200 in this context because I always want more reach.

The 100-400 might be fun while hiking, but wouldn't be as useful as the f/4.0 for a dimly lit stage.

It's still a wonderful lens. I use it mostly to shoot city birds during the winter when light is (very) low here.
