Hi,

I've made some posts on my website on the 100-400 and the new firmware in short. Even an comparison against the Tamorn 150-600. In short, AF-C is your friend, Good light is necessary, get closer, conditions (air/light/humidity) play a large role, practise, practise.... it took me 6months to get used to the longer focal length.

Take a look here:

Hey, thank you for the links, I've just had a look - you've got some really good results with it, very nice. I'm convinced I had a bad copy of the lens now as it was nowhere near to being that sharp, even in testing against brick walls and such in perfect light, and when compared to the same focal lengths and settings on the 50 - 140mm and 1.4x and 2 x.

Your posts make me want to give it another try at some point in the future though and hope I get a good copy!

GO for it! It is really a wonderful lens, but you really need to get the hang of it. In the beginning I also thought I got a dud. However after testing indoors over 20m with a tripod and focus check I saw that the lens is sharp!
