Now that the Olympics have come and gone.  Those who got to play with the 200-400, thoughts?  Comments?  Samples?

have seen a few thoughts, but am curious still.

Thanks

That should be part of the agreement when getting a loaner.  ;)

I don't think there will be the same coverage nor the same level of demand for equipment as for the Olympics.

That lens is actually still going to be better than any 200-400L they will produce.
