Taken in my back yard (it's raining still, light is horrible. These are at 200mm, 1/60 and 1/80 of a second, hand-held (LOL) at f/2.8. Only post is auto levels. ISO 800 if it looks noisy.

very sweet lens... too bad it's teathered to a nikon.

OH it is sorta heavy, but what can you expect. The build quality feels excellent.

Just wait until you start shooting with this lens...You will never take it off. The is the best lens for the money EVER! IMNSHO =)

the shots look very promising! Backround blur is fun with this length/apeture kinda lens.

It's like Christmas! I just got my DiMage Z3 today too!

Congrats deapee with your new glass and sure it is a great one. It is almost possible to win a ribbon with it!

I'm so stoked to head out with this thing. There sure isn't going to be anything remote related to 'inconspicuous' while walking around with this thing.

It's neat how everything's internal -- the lens doesn't go in/out as you zoom, and nothing moves outside as you focus.

Nice...

But in that photo there appears to be something wrong with the lens, there is a huge hole down the center of it! :-).

I assume you'll have the same loving relationship with this as us Canon folks have with our 70-200 F/2.8's...

Cheers, Me.

shots here: //www.dpchallenge.com/forum.php?action=read&FORUM_THREAD_ID=248017

why is it like that down the center? Maybe because it was only zoomed to 80mm and it's all internal I'm thinking?
