In my opinion, you just bought the most useful lens in the world!

Did you also buy the new version 3 1.4 and 2x tele-extenders to go with the lens?


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Now that I have my dream car, maybe I can start saving for a super tele, too. (Not sure I can handle the weight of a 600mm, but that's what husbands are for, huh? LOL!)

Great shots, by the way! Congrats on that great lens.

Thanks so much everyone, I was out shooting all weekend and this lens is incredible. I have many sharp shots at 1/80 and lower while resting on foot on a wood board in a blind (not enough room for tripod). I did buy the 1.4 but not 2.0 yet as I shoot with 7D.

It's funny, bettyn mentioned her dream car, we just bought a 2004 Nissan 350Z with very low miles and the lens was only $99 more!!! Whew!!

Basically yes, I had a Sigma 50-500 and I have a Canon 100-400, but this is my first prime super telephoto and at this quality for sure.
