This is without doubt a quality piece of kit, with the finest glassware bar none. Yes it is on the heavy side for handheld photography but not unuseable. It has been my choice lense for the past two and a half years and never failed me. When used with a 1.4 converter it gets you up close and personal and wildlife aside is also a great portrait lense. I use it in conjunction with a wimberley sidekick coupled with an Arca Swiss B3 Ballhead mounted on a Gitzo GT3540LS carbon fibre tripod which makes for an excellent combination.
Overall I would definately recommend this lense if it's within your budget, so go on, live the dream!!!
