I have used the lens for three soccer matches since I got it and I am so far pleased with the image quality. I like the weight and auto focus tracking.
I bought this lens mainly for wildlife photography. I use it mostly with the Sigma APO 2x teleconverter and I get some very sharp pictures. Occasionally I wish I had image stabilization but with the fast shutter speeds I use most of the time I do not miss it much.
Sold my AF Nikkor 300f4 EDIF and was looking for a 300f2.8 lens when a friend notified me that a photography store on eBay was going out of business and selling Sigma long lenses for good prices so I bid $1825 and to my surprise I won the auction and received a Sigma USA waranteed lens.
Fast and quiet and works quite well with Sigma's teleconverters.
Only weakness is the tripod collar could be a little longer like the one on the Sigma 120-300. My preference is for the center of gravity to be a little more towards the front rather than the rear of the lens.
