Thought I wanted a zoom for my Pentax 645.

I've always wanted the 80-160 zoom to take the place of the 75 and 150. It would be nice not have to have to change lenses. Last week one popped up at KEH at a good price. It's nice, except it's a huge monster! Larger than I imagined. One good thing is it focuses much closer than the 150 prime-it's usually the other way around. I was going to sell the 75, but that lens is so small, I may keep it for when I want to go light. Have you ever ordered a lens and it was bigger than you imagined? I hate that. And now I need to buy 77mm 81b and polarizer filter...and a 77mm hood.
