Yay - I finally have this lens!

Okay, not much for subjects yet, but I did find a duck!

Here are a few from lunch break:

I still need to MA the lens but this bad boy is sharp!

I can't wait to use it on the kiddos :)

Yes.... seems you do need to MA it. on this lens even a +1 worth of adjustment can make a big difference.

Also this lens prefers to be shot at knee height. Kneel down and then take your shot. Well... maybe this lens doesn't prefer it but try it out and you'll see what i'm talking about. The separation really improves.

In Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois, you want to make sure you're seen by other hunters, or you might get shot.
