Be curious to hear your thoughts after some real field use

So far after testing if for about half an hour is this is a fantastic lens. The focus is fast even when the extender is enabled.

btw there has been some confusing wether the usual carrying case is included. The dealer even thougt it was not. But it is included.

Tommy,

Congrats on the new lens. I look forward to the photographs from your Africa trip, plus the reports on how the lens "behaved".

You want photos :p, here is a couple quick shots of the lens itself. Better photos have to wait a little while.

FROM the lens, not OF the lens :D

Although, I have to admit curiosity...What is the third position of the Focus Preset switch? It looks like the settings are "Off", "On" and "Audible"...???
