Thanks a lot for your help and support. I know I havent been on this board long but you are all so welcoming friendly and helpful.
I love my new lens almost to the point Im afraid to take it out of the case however its been a bad weather week so nothing much lost. And not the kind of bad weather that makes interesting skys just drab.
Jim it was your final input that put me over the top you recomended this lens so highly. I will never regret for a minute the drained savings account and maxed out cc. Its only money (lol) and anyway Ill get another check next month.
Now how long will it take me to save up enough for the 80-200 F2.8?
