The comment about the 500f/4 focusing 30% faster than Canon's lens on a 1DMkIV was a little on the optimistic side, and that is what got me going. That is a fantastic statement. The lens would almost have to focus before looking in the viewfinder and pressing the shutter button to be 30% faster. If I ever see anyone with a Sony body and that lens, I will make a point of talking to them about it. If they'll talk to me, that is.

One should always take subjective observations with a grain of salt. Also different lens/body combinations perform differently so any speed difference could be the result of something other than the lens.
