    You won't regret it, sharpest lens I've ever owned.

      The dual stabilization was the main reason why I decided to go for the 300mm F4 rather than the Pan 100-400mm, despite the advantages of a zoom lens. The converter will have to wait for a while but I really must get round to selling some of my gear which I no longer use, even if I only get give-away prices for it.

        You are mistaken Ross.

            We should have known your gender from all the creepy crawlies you photograph. Is that remark sexist?

                You are confusing us again. I thought you said that your wife has not had them off yet.

                    Sounds fantastic Ron ! I'm sure you're gonna love it and get some superb images.
                    I've been casually keeping an eye on the Pan 100-400mm and the 300mm f4 pro but I really do think it has to be 300mm, plus I already have the MC-14 converter.

                        The Kelly/Andrew confusion raises an interesting point. It is so useful when a post includes the poster's forename at the foot. It seems much more polite to address a reply to a real name rather than 'Megazoom Meister' or similar. Apologies to any Megazoom Meisters out there.

                            Congrats Ron, I can't think of a better home for one of these eccelent lenses.
                            BTW
                            There is a Glossy Ibis at Salthouse, where I'm currently staying until Friday morning on a family holiday, I got a recrecord shot but it was very far away and I'm still honing my skills, it's on flikr if you want to look, I wish you better luck if it's not to far from where you are in Norfolk, I'm sure you will love you new lense.

                              Goodonya Andrew. I wasn't sure about the sewing interests, although I'm not afraid to use a needle having made (remade totally) two kilts for myself (& converted a formal tails jacket to a Prince Charlie jacket to wear with the kilts). There's an awful lot of hand sewing in that.

                                Well, it has arrived and it does indeed appear that the box has never been opened. It is an impressive looking piece of equipment and is much neater than the 50-200 SWD. The lens hood especially is considerably more compact.

                                One thing which I have noticed straight away is that the natural place to support the lens with my hand is directly under the focusing ring. I think I will spend a lot of time accidentally moving that to the manual focusing position until I get used to it. At least I will know what to check if the camera won't autofocus.

                                'Sods Law' dictates that there wasn't a single bird to be seen anywhere near the garden when I went outside a little while ago, so I haven't been able to test it properly yet and I have got to go out now so I will have to wait until tomorrow to play. I am very pleased with it so far, though.
