That lens resolution is almost spooky. Skin pores and all. What's funny is we all love and want that kind of resolution but I suspect most models would prefer a little skin softening in post.

Actually, for the price of the lens, it appears to be a bargain based on the results.

I need to get some used-gear pricing thought out right after my nap; as he yells out to Bonnie, "..............is lunch ready"

KEH is a good place for that. Pretty hard to sell any photo gear for prices above what they sell for and they have a warranty.

I thought November was forever. I looked last night on B&H's website and they had the 40-150mm f2.8 listed with an estimated delivery date of December 31.........2099.

The ultimate tease. A lens only my great, great gandchildren will be able to buy.

As of this morning, the "estimated date" was gone.

B&H bought my regular old kit lens for 85 bucks for some reason.

If I could sell all my 'OLD' kit lenses this journey would be more like a coach ticket to Ft Worth instead of 1st-cl to Melbourne; Bonnie wouldn't need that greeter-job up at the store.

WoWzer Bob
EXCELLENT IQ
3 thing stopping me from a 40-150 pro

1. I shoot landscape , cars and flowers so my 12-50 is OK
a 12-40 would be really OK
2. also shoot critters and birds so my 75-300 is OK
3. $ 1500.00
