GM 100-400 mm is very useful!

This is probably the lens I use most, and I can carry the camera with this combo in my hand all day long. Sharpness is excellent wide open, and autofocus is very fast and reliable thanks to two focus motors. I can't think of any lens that can replace this one for me. Maybe a 400 mm f:4 prime or something like that, but then I would miss the flexibility of the zoom.

but really cost is likely biggest reason I have not pulled the trigger on this.

Still well worth the money, I would say! Well built, and excellent glass.

The ability to down the road add a Sony TC is also a nice feature of this lens.

For extra reach I sometimes use the 1.4x teleconverter. Great sharpness.
