It's a nice lens and a very compact long reach option, excellent for golf tournaments etc.. I regret selling mine.

Pfffft.

If you want 'reach', come by and we'll throw it on my 2000mm:



Bring your own F-mount adapter, though! (5,400mm equivelant, if you don't want to do the math)

Well, today wasn't the best weather to get out and give it test drive, but I did manage to take a short walk around the back yard and take these on a cloudy day:

Great photos Donald. I've seen them before on flikr, while debating about getting this lens.

I like odd bokeh, so I don't know why I haven't purchased this yet... Some of it has to do with having a APS-C camera.

To be quite honest with you, I don't much care for the "nervous" looking bokeh that is often associated with reflex lenses. That's why I usually shoot at distant subjects and rarely use the lens on anything up close.

I had tried a friend's 500/8 reflex some time ago, and found the donut bokeh quite distracting. However, Don, you have made the donuts work for you! And Ken, it seems that you have found a sweet spot.
