My lens arrived this morning via FedEx. It was an eBay purchase, and the lens was acquired new in spring of this year.

It is really a great piece of equipment. Once I figured out that the FEE warning in the viewfinder and control panel signaled that the aperture needs to be set at minimum f-stop, I fired off a few stops. The camera is a D7000, and the screwdriver focus was zippy and fairly quiet.

I have a few questions:

a) where is the serial number stamped on the lens. (I see it printed on the box)

b) where do orient the tripod foot while shooting hand-held.

c) is there ever a need to remove the foot? And how do you do that?

Thanks,

Gary
