I did some test shots with the 70-200/2.8 and the 300/2.8, still w/o MA, and I was very pleased with the results.
Thanks for the great info on the albinism. I'm pretty sure neither parent had pale coloration. I have another shot together with its brother/sister, but I'm currently out of town and I cannot show to you, The other baby was "normal"
