Surely the 560 would have sold better if more people had seen your photos, Frederic.

B&H says they have one available, about four thousand bucks.
If I tell you how much I paid mine, you would cry...

I DID cry - I paid close to six thousand for mine (including various shipping charges). And the crying was when the price dropped - I was happy at the time that I wasn't spending the $12,000. on something equivalent from Canon. And although it was a considerable adversarial struggle to get one that worked, I'm really happy with it, now - it's my sharpest long-range lens, I think, and that's compared to the Pentax FA 150-450, FA* 300mm, and the Canon Canon EF 70-200mm, and the Tamron 150-600.
Oh my ! I'm crying now for you !

I have shot with mine a ton in the 10 months that I have had it. Bought from Henry’s Canada, when the lens was discounted 1100cdn

The shots below cross posted with the 300mm + lens club
