So how good or not ?
It's a useful range of focal lengths if you want a long tele-zoom. I'd expect the performance to be OK as that market is one where the weight advantage counts over larger formats. I use a Canon 100-400 F4/5.6 on full frame for events and it is very heavy. A monopod is essential if in for a long spell of use. The 400 mm focal length (35 mm equivalent) is a bit short for birding but a useful starting point. If that is your intent check it with a x1.4 converter before you buy to see how the focus works.
I owned the MK1 version and it's an OK lens. Not in the top rank but entirely adequate. The image stabilisation works well and it focussed fast enough on a G2 to capture most action. Some sample images...
Thanks Andrew. Some nice shots on a G2, I am using a G3 but looking to get a G7 soon
There is of course also the 45-150 if you don't need the full range.
Yes that's what I am using now
