In terms of getting an acceptably sharp image, at least at the long end where it's likely to be used the most. Disappointing for a $1500 lens that is supposed to compete with the big boys from Canon/Nikon.

As someone who has used his a little, I don't agree, though I suppose that is predictable...

Yes, the results aren't as spectacular at 100mm, but I can't say I'm upset, it's still far ahead of any alternative zooms for the system (and competitive IQ wise with alternatives for other systems).

To say this is a F4 lens is nuts. Take a look at this, wide open at F2.8 (at 100mm):

This is at 44mm:
