I have the OS version, picked it up last summer and I have been very impressed with it. The OS works great and I have produced sharp images of a non moving subject at 1/60 of a sec. at 400 and 500mm. I used it at the Oakland, CA zoo with a monopod and was able to very close to the tigers. It's as good or better than my Nikon 70-300 vr.

Wow, 1/60, that's very impressive. I guess I'm going to have to give it a hard look.  Thanks for the info!

I lug my photo equipment everywhere. Is it heavy? Sure. Is it uncomfortable and cumbersome? Absolutely. Is it often an inconvenience? You bet. But is it all worth it? Maybe.
