    Just got mine too. Crazy big and a little heavy, will take getting used to. Can't wait to get out with it. Did you get the lens protector for it?

    If you mean a lens coat,no I didn't. I cant even test it out,its snowing here.The weight is about the same as what I previously had Sigma 120-400 just a lot longer.How is your OS,Looking through my finder it does appear a little jerky still and I can't actually hear the OS kick in and out but does seem to be working.

    this is what I was talking about... my wife got one for it and I was shocked it was $120.00. Seems like a waste of money but it is added protection I suppose.

    Oh ok no,I am not a believer in any UV or protection filters over the front element.Lens Hood will take care of that.

    Yes its safer there then the bottom of the Camera,better balanced there and its not going to be on a mono pod or a tripod.
