In theory those great big lenses sound like a great idea. Then when I see shots like yours, Kjell, I decide that there's no way I'd be able to use one of them. If the DA*300, which I believe is a similar size to the F*300 in your picture won't fit in my camera bag, there's no way that the 600 would. So I wouldn't be able to take it very far, or use it without a very sturdy tripod, one that's heavier than the one I have, not to mention the expense of one of these. So even though I'd love to have the awesome quality pictures this lens is capable of, it's just not practical for me. Sigh. Of course, if someone were to offer me one for $1000, I sure wouldn't turn it down!

If I were to have to carry it a long ways every time I used it I'd need a helper to tote for me Harriet. The front porch will see more of it than anywhere else. Easy carry to there....about 15 steps or so.

Hey Dawg I've got an idea, I'll go halves with you. You can use it during your summer, I'll use it through my summer. Now, it's coming up to my summer so I'll use it first, then I'll send it back to you, yes I will, I promise I will.
