not really. I wanted an easy to handle lens as I envisaged using it in awkward places ie trying to keep some foreground by getting down to ground level. Blackstone is heavier, not immediately obviously but after a while the difference became more obvious. This is why I chose the Firefly version.
Thanks Barry.
