I agree with the previous comments. This lens is overpriced, compared to its competitors (Nikon, Olympus, etc.), and too heavy and bulky for handholding. The photos represented here by the tester are amateurish, at best, and should be deleted immediately. These photos can only hurt the sales of this lens.
Finally, it should be noted that most pros won't have to shell out real cash money for this lens because Canon will make it available for free as a loaner at major sporting events. Only well-heeled nature photographers and videographers can afford to buy this lens.
