rocked my world for 1 year now!! I love the lens, and I have no complaints... here is one shot from last winter, and a gallery I put together in this link below, with some of my favourite shots with this lens over the last year... about 60 shots in here, with the exif info below each shot. The gallery starts with a shot I took about 25 minutes after I walked out the door from Camtech Photographic, in Hamilton, Ontario. http://www.pbase.com/raymondjbarlow/shorebirding Can't wait for the D300 to show up, and try this new focusing system., and sensor. best to all!
