I agree with most ..should have had a tripod colar.. BUT from the very first shots with this lenses i said "WOW"

it is a very sharp lens..very quick AF..very portable and hand holdable given 480mm
on a crop camera.it still thrills me so yes its worth it
just shop around and you won't regret buying this lens

PS i imeadiately sold my 70-200 F4L and 1.4x T/C and have never never regretted it
buy it !!

UPDATE

I also just Sold my 400mm F5.6L 3 weeks ago..It was an excellent "sharp wide open" Lens

But as i used it infreqently i decided to sell it especially since having now a very sharp
480MM with the 70-300L it would have been used even less..
ALSO
I will not buy a lens without IS anymore (except UWA)

Canon new 24-70 2.8L without IS is just plain dumb unless they are also going to release an IS version
