I'd also like to point out that, while the 100-300 APO is a great lens, the non-APO version is no slouch. Yes, it is slightly softer, has slightly more CA, and focuses slower, but Dyxum members give it a score of 3.90 compared to 4.49 for the APO version. That certainly doesn't justify the almost 10:1 difference in price.And a score of 3.90puts it even with the current 75-300 for a lot less money.

Yeah, I was really wasn't buying into the APO factor of the lens. The lens did well over a camping trip and provided some great photos. I think I will keep it a little while longer until something big changes in my life ha-ha.

I am really curious to see what will happen with the FF A900 comes out. I think most people like the crop-factor of the lens. Putting it on a FF wouldn't make me happy with having 70mm instead of 105mm. That's just me though. :lol:
