Nice set @runnah. Can you post photos of the tears when you send it back?? lol

I want one as well.

Haha yeah it ruined me. Things were still dark/noisy but much better shooting at 2.8.

Did you use a monopod or were these handheld; what did you feel about the weight of the lens?

I used a monopod. The weight wasn't bad. I would want to hand hold for 10 minutes while waiting for a bird to move, but it was very manageable.

Do what I did, shop around for an old Tamron SP 300 2.8 or a Sigma. The Tamron is loaded with ca but a quick profile build in LR and you can do away with it on import. I spent $1200 on that instead of spending big money on a Nikon. From there I saved a few dollars then went to a Sigma 120-300.

with the 2.8 you can keep shooting when the fog rolls in lol

Those used 300's that Adorama has listed sound like reasonable prices.

Compared to a new bank of stadiums lights they are a steal!
