No problems with my lens. I used it in 90 F heat all summer long and no problems in the winter.
I have to agree, the lens looks kind of weird when you zoom and it extends to a 'rocket launcher' size. For sure, you are getting the peoples attention when shooting in the street.

Talking about shooting in the street. I often shoot parades in NY and miss about 10 % of the shots because the autofocus is too slow. That's on a F100.

jonkhill,

how is the AF performance on the N80? I'm asking because the D100 is supposed to be based on the N80 and I might get me one later in the year.

Have a nice day

Andreas
