I was tempted to buy the Mark I when it first got released but the trombone style of it just didn't do it for me. Glad I didn't 'cause there were numerous complaints that the design pulls in too much dust etc hence why they nicknamed it the dust pump.

Fast forward to today and the Mark II of this lens looks awesome on paper. Anyone here picked one up as yet?

The price is a bit harsh though.

Ya, just around $2200. from BHPhoto. Maybe I should've kept my CPS membership to field test one.

I still haven't gotten over my decision to buy a house instead of the 200-400...maybe this lens could help temper that pain...

LOL, think of it as a house warming gift to yourself.
