so does the USB dock just allow firmware updates and increased customization of the lens ?

I'm not familiar with these...

Yes, the dock allows for firmware updates and adjustment of focus and stabilization / lens behaviors.

bought it at 700 +10% ebaybuck from focus camera last year, this lens is super sharp but focus is not the best. Still I was able to shoot sports, but birds in flight is really hard to shoot with this one.

I'm tempted to get this but I don't have a use for it currently Smilie ideally I'd like to get the canon mark ii version but that's quite a bit more. Think you just saved me since most uses I can think of would require quick focus.

Many birders use this lens and often tout it's fast focus. Go visit a birders forum to see what's up. What lens are you using now..or a newb?

I used this to shoot some birds in flight, and the acceptable focus rate was definitely not high, especially when not using the focus limiter. Not saying it is unusable though.

I use mine on a 70D and a 6D2, and I agree with the conclusion. Maybe on a 5D or 1D it will perform better.
