There comments on weight distribution don't match my experience with this lens, i'd say its quite comparable to the Sigma 500mm F4.5 in weight distribution... the reviewer may not be accustomed to large telephoto lenses therefore may not be providing an accurate assessment of its handling.

-  Hi Mike,

You say "their comments on weight distribution don't match my experience with this lens". Have you tried the lens? if you have OK, but I'm still surprised that it's possible to hand hold(with a half decent success rate), being lighter and longer and more prone to be affected by the wind. I'm already struggling @ 300mm. I know you've mastered the technique, but us ordinary guys might find not so easy.
