Congrats. Sharpest lens I have ever used. Worth every penny.

Mine's supposed to be here Tuesday.

I sure could have used it today, though. :grin:

Congratulations! The Great White Father will not disappoint you!

Have fun with it!

Sounds like many people are going to be having a great Christmas! It's a really really heavy lens but it is really fun and versatile. Now that I have a lens that can do a 200mm reach, I'm itching for more, like the 300 or 400 :D

'Tis the season; my 70-200 and 1.4 III extender turned up this morning. Had a quick play earlier; ridiculously sharp even at 200mm and wide open.

You'll enjoy it. Best purchase I made, it seldom gets removed from my camera.

You all need to just cut that out right now. I am a happy 70-200 F4 user, but the more I look at the mkII, the more I feel like I "need" to get the new mkII.
