I can honestly say I think I have never seen one except pics, but this 400mm af-s f2.8 is a mamoth of a lens :shock: . The size of the element compared to my ol 300mm f4 af-s is about 3 x larger. My first challenge was trying to figure out how the heck I get that on the d2h as my wimberly stuff hasnt shown up yet. 11Ibs in one hand, d2h in the other and try to get it on :? ........... OH, this is going to be fun. LOL!!!!!!! :lol: :lol:

Sorry had to share in my excitement............now if it would just fricken warm up....Going on a road trip in a month to shoot wildlife for a week, so should be a whoot. No florida but BC will have to do!

Hi Frank.......

Frank, ordered my sidekick, two plates and a partridge in a pair tree. Then ordered my arca swiss b-1. A new tripod will have to wait till I recoup :cry: . Ordered it one day and got it in 1 day and a half at my doors, considering Im from Canada, that is lightening fast. Incredible service. The full head without a doubt would have been a better choice, but I wanted something to compliment my bag not just one lens. Ball head I can use irregardless of what I shoot. Now I just need my ball head to show up! No way I will be handholding this sucker. LOL Plus now I can use tripod/monopod.............see how it works out, have 60 days to change my mind and go to full head.......not cheap stuff but great quality!

Dave.......

atleast you have hair. LOL..........and I am in my late 30's, whats up with that!

Seriously Dave, or any other NC member, if you ever have the desire to come Alberta way, open offer.............Banff and Jasper is incredible for shooting. Just dont have all those nice birdies that most of you have down Florida way :cry: :cry: But have most else and the landscapes with the mountains is incredible!!! I envy when you hear allot of FM'ers getting together and do road trips, that would be a hoot. I think I have ever found was 1 member from dpreview in the same province.........feel alone. LOL

My trip to BC is predominately to shoot hummingbirds, and wildlife in general, and what ever else I can shoot!!!! Very much looking forward to it!
