As I said earlier, in my opinion, the rumors of how vast the scale of the sample variation is in this lens is greatly exaggerated. I've used four copies and have seen no discernible differences whatsoever. The lens is somewhat awkward to hold at first, and not easy to use. Also, many people attempt to leave the IS on when photographing birds in flight. It is NOT a good lens for flight shots when the IS is on, as the second the IS takes to engage is often long enough for you to miss the shot. With the IS turned off, flight shots are 200 times easier.
