If you are a bodybuilder or an NFL lineman you might be able to handhold that lens. Otherwise you will have to use it on a tripod virtually all the time. Personally I hate tripods. I bought the 70-200 F4. It is easily hand held and can take a teleconverter if you need more length. It is more money but that is up to you. If that lens you are looking at is perfect the price is excellent, but if the size means you won't use it much it probably isn't that much of a bargain. Good luck.

Nah, I handhold that lens all the time and I am scrawny.  It's only a few lbs...
