Spent the morning with it in the woods here.

I love this lens.

A few more shots with it are at:

Nice shots. I'd brighten up the one aboveand add some more contrast, but it looks like a great lens. What the aperture range and how much does it run?

I can smell the money burning a whole in your pocket. Save some for the littles kids at Xmas. The big kid has enough toys.

Thanks for your concern. I have been financing my photographic toys through ebay sales, so that's my play money. I am not seriously in the market for the Tamron 200-500 at this point. I got a 100-400 lens and a teleconverter. That gives me enough reach on the long end for now. But I am still curious about how fast the lens is and how much it runs.

F5-6.3 if I remember right. Adorama and BH sell it for about $900.

Yeah, definitely out of my price range. I am fine with my Vivitar 100-400 which cost me $60 for now. I think I rather feed my kids.
