I agree, it doesn't sound spectacular, however maybe they should do a review of the Sigma 500mm F4.5 for comparison

I was thinking that too, looks pretty mediocre for a $7000 lens, but I never shoot longer than 200 or 300mm so I don't really know how a lens that long should perform.

Honestly though I would expect very fast focus mechanism for the price.  If it is just okay, that doesn't give people a lot of reason to buy say a Pentax over a Canon/Nikon.  I won't complain though as it is at least a new lens.

I was hoping you or Ron would comment on this since you have a lot more experience with the telephoto lenses.
