Dave,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very sturdy. Mounting ring allows good balance. Smooth zooming. Tip: practice with lens ring sets or bellows before buying to experiment and learn about lighting and focus depth problems and so get the best out of this lens when you buy it.
Bad points:
A bit heavy, so your stand needs to be very strong to avoid flexing and vibration. A bit expensive for many users.
