Thanks all for the nice comments.

The lens is itself a piece of art, well made from any aspect. But it has it's limits in use. Not only weight and size, you can see how the tail of the swans are out of focus, when the heads are perfectly sharp. And this with the lens stopped down to f8! When fully opened to f5.6 the DOF is... ...n't.:-)I don't use the lens very often, but wouldn't dream of parting from it.
