Thanks for the comments, Yes I loved this lens but as I get older my eyesight is diminishing... and it gets heavier to carry around.

Loved mine when I had it

I recommend this lens very highly IF you take the time to build the skills to exploit its potential and IF you are willing to deploy a monster tripod...light tackle need not apply.

I only sold mine because I lost my prime spot for bird photography and selling it yielded a 400 MF, upgrades to my fast 50, two better short zooms, a 300 MF a body upgrade (K20-D to K-5) and still left a few $$$ for other projects.
