Found one of these at a local store and was wondering about the quality. It is smc, and obviously manual focus. I was thinking it might be good for birding. I tend to use manual a lot when shooting birds anyway, as half the time you have to focus around branches etc. Any thoughts on this lens would be appreciated. Thanks......thekman.

this lense should be stunning if you get it for a good price.. you will have to stop it down to shot and meter but, hey, it's basicly a tripod lens.

Thanks Ira and Roy. It's in good shape. Lens is clean and the focus ring is nicely dampened. They want $400 for it. I'm leaning towards getting it. Make up my mind by Monday....thekman
