I just picked up a used copy at the beginning of the month. I finally had a chance to use it over the weekend for a riding competition that my daughter was in. I'll be honest, I am not impressed with the shots that I took. I do believe that has more to do with the environment than the lens. I did have a few shots that just blurred out of focus completely, that surprised me. It seems a little slow on the autofocus. I'm probably a bit spoiled because for the last several competitions that my daughter was in, I rented the newer version of the lens. My daughter has a few field hockey games coming up, I'm looking forward to putting the lens through its paces.

I rented the EF 100-400mm push-pull lens to shoot the California Air Show in Salinas, and a tennis match in Solano CA. It is a fun lens to use, with a decent telephoto range. It has its quirks, if you are not used to the push-pull zoom design, over that of the twist the barrel for zoom in the Mark II. I am more used to the push-pull feel of the old zoom film camera lenses. The price is about half the purchase price of an EF 100-400 Mark II lens.

Liked the lens so much, Santa is gonna give me an early Christmas present. Hope he doesn't drop it, coming down the fire place. :lol:

I just used a borrowed Mk II version of this lens for a track meet yesterday and I must say that I was impressed (with the lens, not necessarily with my skills) as far as sharpness of the photos and the fast AF. Had very few throw away images due to focus issues and most of those issues were probably due to me, not the lens
