Why is there so much fuss about the quality of a $1000 lens that comes with a 5-year guarantee?
Cuz it's too damn cold and crappy outside to do anything else
I'm thinking (hoping?) this lens will pleasantly surprise.
Now that's just teasing !!!!
Looking forward to your review, do you know when/where it will be published first?
Yes Dustin, it's not nice to tease the less fortunate.
As to why all the fuss. It looks like this lens may be better optically than a canon 100-400mmL and is about 2/3 the price. There hasn't been any real competition to the canon 100-400mm for way too long. If enough of the established testers give this a thumbs up I'll be getting one, tired of wating for an update of the 100-400.
Sigma should also be worried as none of their 400mm or 500mm zooms beat the 100-400mmL. Although Sigma could be eating canon's lunch with their 35mm and 50mm primes.
