Does anyone knows if there are imatest results available. normally i check photozone.de but i like to compare what kind of sharpness you get from this lens

Just take the word from anyone who's ever owned one. It's the sharpest lens you'll ever use.

+1, it is a horrible lens in sharpness, you will be bleeding until the death!

Hi

I'm heading to Bandipur Tiger Reserve, India for weekend shooting. This is fantastic place for birding and mammals shooting in South India.

Here are my first shots with this beauty

straight out of the camera raw files:
*These were obviously put on photobucket and so the quality went down...

1) Focus on the wheel center.

Those are some good shots Dave. Hopefully I will be able to get my 300 out this weekend and use it for the first time. Haven't even mounted it on the camera yet, had it for 9 days now and just looked at it. :oops:
