I now have one.... :biggrin:....thanks to the for sale forum. I hope to have new pics to share this weekend! (I'm in the middle of unpacking and moving into a new house or I would have some for you already)

Congrats (to both of you), it is truly a wonderful lens! :smile: I had a very hard time getting it off my camera for quite some time. Look forward to seeing your shots with it. :smile:

Congrats Sonya - I got mine recently from the sale forum as well.

It simply rocks. I don't have any "wow" photos with it yet, but here's one recent
shot from a session.

Thanks Chris. I was expecting some BIG lens to be called the Beast. Why is this lens nicknamed as such?
This is the (physicly) largest mid range zoom you will find.:eek:

Sonya, you are going to love this lens, if you can lift it.:biggrin:
Maybe a workout rutine, some curls would probably do the trick.

No kidding! I have it on my D300 with grip and it's going to take some getting used to. My heaviest by far! I'll go take some pics now.....but like I said, we're in the middle of moving into a new home so my shooting time has been ZERO! I'm having withdrawals.....

Linda, I don't see a photo, just a protected by owner graphic.

Get your family stuff done first, then put your full attention on getting familiar with THE BEAST. Lets see some photos of those cute little girls:wink:

It's now my walk-around lens (oh, my aching back)!
