We found this lens light and compact enough to carry around in a standard camera bag, so for a focal length of 500mm, this has to be an advantage, making it available when needed but not necessary to have a separate carrying bag.
Bob Atkins
Optically the lens isn't a match for a prime apochromatic telephoto lens, but that's not really a fair comparison. It's less than 1/5th the price of a 500mm f4 lens and less than a third of the size and weight, plus it zooms from 200-500mm.
