I've been drooling over this lens for several years now. I actually mounted one in a camera shop once but this was my first time really using it. Now I MUST OWN IT!! It was actually mildly painful to have to give this lens back. The constant f2.0 aperture is to die for. The zoom range is ideal. Paired with the 2x teleconverter, this lens covers almost the same range as the 90-250 with only one stop loss of light. Plus you get the added flexibility of removing the teleconverter. The lens is not lightweight. I carried it quite a bit and shot handheld with it quite a bit but it is not a carry-around lens. It's much bigger and heavier than you probably think if you've never seen it in real life. The tripod collar is a lifesaver. You can carry the lens-camera combination (upside down) by the collar. Of course you can also mount it to a tripod or monopod and easily rotate the combination. Autofocus is lightning fast. Manual focus is not as different from the focus-by-wire of the standard grade lenses as I thought it would be. Image quality is simply dreamy. I'll say it again, I MUST OWN THIS LENS!!!

Awesome! That's about the only word I can think of for this lens, I captured some of my best photos ever with this lens. It's a great multi-purpose lens with it's focal range and the Depth it can create is brilliant. Of all the glass I've ever attached to my E-620, this is by far my favorite, I cant think of anything negative to say about it.
