I received my lens last week and have run a few pics through it, I am not going in to all the technical details but I have to say, it is fab for the price, even hand held at 300 mm it is good, doesn't feel cheap bigger than I thought but I am completely happy, only problem the focus ring causes problems with my cokin filters.
