Richard,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I was at a motor sport event during the bank holiday week-end, and the lens was perfect. I obtained good clear pictures of the cars both on the move and stationary.
Bad points:
The weight of the lens, which can't be helped if you want the quality, and the zoom range.
