Thank you photosphere42 - once you get used to AF-lenses there is "no way back" - and you will discover a whole new world out there with new applications for motives you earlier did not get ...

Nice image Walter. I'm still pretty much in the "old days". Just got my 2nd AF lens a couple of weeks ago.

Thank you, Terence!
Its a beast of a lens, sharp like non other I have tried, but heavy and cumbersome, as the small aperture-ring is right by the mount, and with thick fingers, a bit too close to the camera for my taste. It takes time to use this lens, as the manual focus is something I almost have forgotten about in the last 10 years of only AF-lenses. In the old days (when I started out in photography) all lenses were manual focus and one did not think about it so much, but most lenses had f/3.5 to start with, and we all closed down a few notches anyway. But this lens has a small DOF and perfect focus is crucial!
B.T.W.: It is also an expensive pice of glass, and I use it only occasional (when I'm in a special mood!).I have had it for 3 years and I will pass it on to sombody new in the future, because I cannot afford to have it staying in the cupboard all the time :o)
