Renowned UK wildlife photographer Andy Rouse published a full review of the lens - he's been testing it for 6 months. Going by the article & the images he published on his blog, this looks to be the lens to get. Now who's got a spare 12k.

That's why you need to buy it here in the States, Mark. We'll have it for only $12K.

Still doesn't hide the fact that I don't have a spare $12k to drop on a lens. ;(

I was at an aircraft photography day last year where he was using it - he went absolutely ballistic, calling me all the names you can imagine, when I posted a couple of anonymous photos of it here - somewhat OTT as there had been plenty of shots of it inuse at the Olympics published by then!!

Are there any fat people around here -- such as myself -- who want to lose some weight, have fun, and be healthier?

This is not an ad for any particular fad, food, or piece of gear, of course. I'm setting myself the challenge of losing enough weight to hit 200 pounds by New Year's Eve (38 pounds in 33 weeks), and I'd like some company along the way so we can cheer each other along, maybe make a bit of a competition out of it.

Anyone interested, PM me. Today I decided that I've had enough of being fat, sloppy, and out of shape.

On a much less cheerful note, I'm letting our family know that Rolf's been getting ultrasound checkups every six months to ensure his bladder reflux didn't return. His last three ultrasounds came back perfect, but today's did not.

He's got a bunch of water in his left kidney, and we're going to start a series of diagnostic tests to figure out what caused it and how to fix it. The urologist has emphasized that we should assume it's a serious issue until/unless proven otherwise (gee, really, you think so?), so we're off to the races.

I'll keep y'all posted.

May it prove to be nothing of note, Rodolfo.

Rodolfo, good luck with Rolf's condition. Sounds like he's in good hands (both the medical and spiritual kind). I hope they quickly find the problem and it's nothing serious.

I'm also considering on taking you up on your weight loss challenge.....

Greetings from Seattle...

Just back from an epic dining experience with Zim, his son and daughter-in-law (and their adorable puppy.)

Thinking good thoughts for your little man Rodolfo.

Oh dang Rodolfo, that isn't good. Here's hoping the weight loss cures it all. Passing on good vibes and prayers that it turns out to be ok.

Thinking of your little one Rodolfo.

On a separate note, I was the pilot on a glider flight today for a production company filming a documentary about WWII paratroopers and glider-borne troops who dropped in behind enemy lines. They were shooting air to ground video for the movie. I think it is sort of interesting that they took the video from the only flying glider that flew combat missions in Vietnam. Fun day of flying for sure.

I've read about gliders in WW II, but I've never heard of them in Viet Nam. Were they the same kind used in WW II, or more modern? From what base(s) were they towed, and by what?
