No, I don't. I got one for Sue (Mk I version) and one for my brother-in-law Mark (Mk II version) and I've decided I would like to join in with their efforts to master bird photography!

Whatever would I do with three identical lenses? Stereo shots with the left hand kit and standard shots with the right hand perhaps...
Best regards, John

Cosseted in its cosy world of bubble-wrap, the lens arrived today, safe and sound. It stretched, no doubt weary from its long journey, unzipped its coat and now resides happily on my shelf waiting for its first walk.

Looks good and I'll look forward to trying it out soon!
Best regards, John

Could you post some photos from the lens when you have a chance John I was interested in this purchase but you were quicker off the mark than me. Hope your happy with the lens though.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.
