Hello, I think you talk about the new lens, the one with the S mark.

I bought such one, but only used it untill know for wildlive. Next week i will shoot with it at the european championchips women soccer, and i will post you some results

I am a female shooter, and pffff, that lens is heavy like hell together with my 1DX. for me it is in fact to heavy to hand hold, even only for 5 second, off course, with a monopod it is fine to shoot with. I will tell you soon if the reach on a full frame will be enough on a full size pitch

1 bad thing i noticed allready on my lens, is that my focus scale is off. when i focus to the closest point, it is standin close to 2.8 meter on the scale (need to be 1.5) when i focus to infinity it is standing way behind infinity.
But, the focus works well, and the sharpness of the lens looks in my eyes much better then the 100-400L

So, I'll tell you more when i take it out for my first real job



OK.  Let me know your results.
