:lol: Thanks Butch. It's taking its jolly time via UPS ground. I guess I should've opted for Amazon's Octocopter delivery system. This wait is killing me.

Great shots everyone. I wish I could afford this lens. Oh well, it's still fun to look at everyone elses photos.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

~$4,000-$5,000 according to eBay. It's slowly creeping up higher and higher.

$5,000 ??? I can buy a new 24-70mm II and a new 70-200mm IS II with that amount of money -> said goodbye to this lens (and I think it is extremely hard to find a used 50mm f/1.0 L in my country)

Yep. Money would be more wisely spent elsewhere.

But this lens is not about logic and sensibility. :lol:
