Wouldn't you like a 500 that weighs almost as your current 400 DO ?
OK I am exaggerating a little, it will weigh more but you get my point. We only get older with time and the less weight the better.
But I have followed you in the birds thread and you are doing just fine Nice pictures, nice place(s), nice attitude.
I'd love all/any of it if my wallet were fatter! However, lenses are better investments than camera's so who knows.
Question. Has anyone worked out a deal with a retailer that seemed worthy, where they've traded a lens like the 300 2.8 II towards a body or another lens?
My 300 has been unused for nearly two years now.
