    I've been fighting for a good month trying to get this lens and I FINALLY got one in my hands (tried to order 2 months before release). I've only had it for an hour but I've been shooting everything around my house. It just feels and sounds so solid, extremely well built, I can't say a bad thing about it honestly. I can't wait to get my car back on the road so I can run and take shots of everything else and try to get this sucker figured out.

    I'm just so happy :heart:.

    Your cat looks a bit like mine. Is it a Tonk ?
    I took this pic last month when I got my 50mm 1.8. hahaha.

    Actually he's a British Burmese which is a decently close relationship to the Tonkinese I believe. If you're anything like me, you were running around the house just shooting everything, tossed the cat in the sun because you knew he'd stay there long enough to snap a shot off. :lol:

    If you can get the older 50mm 1.4 I really do recommend it, like I said even the 1.8 takes some great pictures. I've just been saving my money for a new lens and this one came across in the perfect time. I got one from the final shipment before Nikon raised the price on them another 15%.

    Well congrats on the new glass. Glad you like it. I just bought the 10.5 f/2.8 fisheye for a playing around lens.

    Do you have any shots with that yet? I'd love to see how they turn out.

    Please do, I know a lot of people say get a wide angle but I love the fisheye because of how it distorts.

    Nice looking felines. I thought they were a Sealpoint and Bluepoint, respectively. :dunno:

    My poor cat is going to be 18 years old this year. She looks pretty rugged.
