Just a Photographer: The old 140-400 was supposed to be f4.5/5.6.
Unfortunately its still unknown if this 100-400 will be f4.0 across its total focal range.

Hope that DPReview can give us readers some clarifications about this?

I am really looking forward to this lens for wildlife and baseball games. A constant f4 aperture would be awesome, but it would probably result in a bulkier lens.

My belief is that those who have purchased and used this lens, as I have, are happy with the results. (See the comments from the verified purchasers at B&H). Clearly it will not meet the needs of everyone, but no lens does. However, it appears that too may individuals are critical of the lens without ever using it. As I earlier indicated, it is now a favorite of mine. It performs quite well on my Fuji S5 and Nikon D300. The review should not discourage anyone from trying the lens if there is an interest. It can always be rented for a weekend before a decision to purchase is made.

noirdude: Good review! But I stay with my tamron 18-270 VC for street photo, the VC works as promised. It's just to expensive for a walk around lens, not to mention its weight too.

Keep it up!

I am sorry to see that the review of the lens was not really a positive one. I have used it since July 2012, and while it does not rival the pro lenses, it has performed wondefully as an all-around lens, especially for family and vacations pictures. I also have the 24-70 (2.8) and 70-200 (2.8(VI), but because of its convenience and performance, the 18-300 has become a favorite. Try this lens with the Fuji S5 and you will be quite pleased.
