Guy I folded within seconds of the preorder going up.

I'm going to sell my F2 version.

To be fair to me it's not pure GAS. This is a lens I've wanted for like a decade, but thought I would never see.

A moderately fast, fairly compact, relatively light otherwise no compromise medium tele.

I've been moaning to anyone who would listen that we live in an era of huge fast zooms, huge super fast zooms, and compromised in IQ budget smaller lenses. And I thought we'd never see another 2.8/135, especially with AF, because of the market. People would say it's too slow for them, or that it overlaps with their fast zoom, and that Ian no compromise except speed prime is too expensive for what it is.

Well I was right about what they would say! And for some of them they are right about their own needs.
