I instinctively grip the camera tighter like it was a drill, so when it focuses, it doesn't twist my wrist off.
+1 Whirrrrr, BANG. Keep thinking it will jerk the camera out of my hand. But there is no hesitation on locking focus. And I think the color rendering is fantastic.

I have a 70-210 but it appears to be suffering from separated elements. In the right conditions it still works alright.

We bought an F 70-210 (for 30 bucks with an SF1 body), over xmas and my wife Tessfully loves it. This is her most recent shot. It is noisy , but what a lens.
