Using the advice several you gave me, I was able to successfully modify the flange on this lens, and tonight got to test it when the local botanical garden opened its annual Holiday Lights Show. A few samples.....all taken with the lens wide open.









I think the lens is definitely a keeper, although it is a beaston the front of the camera. You can definitely feel its weight on your neck and wrist after carrying it up and down hills for about two hours. Thanks for the help, guys.

It does look like a keeper. Very well done!
