I got to try one at a camera store. I shot raw and added sharpening and local contrast. Aside from rippling due to atmospheric conditions, the lens has reasonable sharpness at 300mm f/6.7.

It gets better at f7.1 or 8.  Once i stopped it down slightly, I am very happy with the images at 300 mm.  Hand holding technique with a lens that long and light is also very important and takes some practice.
