I thought it was going to be a good size lens but WOW this thing is HUGE! And did I mention HEAVY
Only took abot 50 shots around the yard and am very impressed. Not sure if it was the lens or not but suddenly, all the birds seemed to disappear from my yard. I'm out there this morning and there were birds and squirells all over the place.
Have to say ... I like the push / pull of this lens very much. Very fast AF too!
Well, time to head off for "points unknown" and test this monster out. Glad I took the night out of work (Hmmmm ... I did the same thing when both my sons were born too ... gotta have priorities, right?)
