Also does the 100-400 have 2 IS modes? Thanks for input also.
I'd give it an 8, I suppose. But the only thing I have to compare it to is the 24-105 and the 17-40. The focus seems fine to me, and I actually prefer the push-pull. The 100-400 was my first long zoom lens, so I don't have an issue with the way it zooms.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
