yes - I had it two years ago; it'll be interesting to see if I can see any changes since then....

It has definitely changed since I had it 1.5 years or so ago. Aperture ring was a bit sticky at times, the finish looked more worn and I guess the lens seemed more "used".

I actually meant me and my abilities to make anything meaningful with a camera and a lens...

Hi all.

Yes .... Lens arrived a little while back.

Have been busy though .... baby number 3 arrived 3 weeks ago ... and my Mum passed away last week.
And my entire family has been sick with the nasty strain of flu that has been going around as well (I haven't been that sick in a long time)

When i get a chance I'll get back through this thread and see which way to send it.

I need to actually take some photos with it yet. Been kinda busy at the moment though.

But it is definitely safe and sound at my place now.

Good to know it arrived, but take as much time as you need. Looks like your life is a rollercoaster right now, try not let that kick your health too much. My condolences.

Just need to get some time to shoot.
