Hi all,
This was such a long wait! When I called Cameta today, they said come on in...I dropped everything and jumped into the truck! This is what I brought back home:biggrin:

Next I ran down to the aerodrome and took a few quick shots. Nothing special at all but just wanted to see if I got a decent copy. All shots are at f4!

Congratulations! I'm envious. The plane shots are great. I especially like the P-51 Mustang model. Lots of work making that plane.

That's one thing I miss about C----. I never had to weep over the 200-400 VR because they had nothing like it. Every time I see one go by I begin to think what I could sell to get one...possibly my firstborn, etc. Somehow I always come up short.

Beautiful lens though. Enjoy! I'll save up enough over the next 6 years to get one. 'twill be a sweet moment indeed.

Congratulations! I enjoyed all your pictures from the box down to the last plane picture. You'll never get tired of that lens!

Congrats on that beauty. I am close to pulling the trigger myself. I have a couple located, now I need to whether to deplete the bank account a bit!
 
Congrats on a gorgeous lens!

A year or so ago I ventured in to the local camera shop and asked to see the 200-400. They pulled one out for me and I quickly determined that there was no way I could handle that lens, just no way..... This was back when I was still shooting primarily handheld and was not using a tripod much because I didn't have a decent setup. The 200-400 was just too heavy for me and that was that, I said.....

Heh, a year later, after I finally got myself set up with a good tripod and the Wimberley gimbal head one day the thought flashed through my head that now I could use ANY long lens I wanted. Weight isn't so much of an issue any more. So far I haven't gone after that 200-400mm, as I'm really happy with my 300mm f/2.8 but that thought lingers in the back of my mind, teasing me....

Congratulations! How come suddenly there are so many threads about this lens? :confused:

A few weeks ago, I went to my favorite camera shop for some accessories, and the owner had a wicked smile on his face telling me that he had a 200-400 there. I wisely warned him not to take it out for me to take a look and try.

It does seem to be a lot of new people joining the club. I think it has to do with spring and getting ready for a new season of summer shooting. That and there is a mission to give everyone hear a bad case of the lens lust :-P
