I own and use the older Nikon-mount version and like it a lot. It's very sharp, compact, but not light. I always use a tripod so I don't need OS. Used ones are also really expensive. I have not used the new OS version and probably won't because it is simply too large.  I haven't used it for sports, only scenics, but you will want to increase the ISO in order to freeze the sports players on the field.  Also, I'm not convinced that you really need OS when panning fast moving subjects.  For sports, I use an 80-400.
