When I use a tripod, the lens just kind of waves around out there by itself - I think that is the issue.  It just isn't sturdy enough not to bend and sway with the wind and/or movement of the camera.

This is the most bizarre thing I ever heard. The 75-300 II is perfectly rigid relative to the camera body. No slop whatsoever.

He might have a lightweight tripod. I have a fairly heavy tripod and in windy conditions ill see vibration at 600mm.
