only had it a week, tried it at a local reserve with bird feeders and very pleased with results, the very shallow dof at full aperture makes focussing very critical. Very sharp quite heavy but build quality is first class. Super out of focus effect. Tried with bean bag, monopod and tripod. Monopod with tripod head best results. used with K5. i was torn between m4/3 pano Leica 100-400mm and the pen 300 mm. cost was the decider .

Pros : optical quality (very sharp, great bokeh), build quality, light, silent AF motor, WR Cons : slow AF, lack of focus range limiter, not for FF cameras
