I saw a post from Fred about it yesterday (I always find his comments on lenses authoritative and convincing) and I was immediately interested until reality set in and I faced up to the fact that I nearly never shoot long.
That said, if I lived in Scotland I would be very keen on a long lens for landscapes as I have been enjoying Annie's excellent telephoto landscapes with her 70-200 and 100-400 for a long while now.
Yeah I've also saw him recommending the lens and also people posting images in the images thread. Seems to have great contrast. I don't shoot long either for landscapes but also a fan of Annie's 100-400 landscapes and often wondered if I should attempt to shoot longer landscapes at times. It's probably just GAS though for me. I just need to get out and shoot ANY landscape as I'm not going out as much recently
Wow, thanks guys
