Re: Finally!!!!

Great lens if the light is OK. Mine stays firmly in the bag when it's dark and cloudy I put the 1.4 or 2.0 tube on the 70-200 to maintain a constant aperture across the full zoom range.

You'll notice after some time that dust appears inside the lens but don't worry to much about it as this dust will soon be deposited on your sensor. To explain - because then lens is a pump action zoom air and dust is sucked in and blown out through small openings to allow the pump action motion to occur. As you then continue to use the lens the dust is moved around inside the lens and camera body by the movement of air caused by using the zoom and if unlucky will eventually end up on the sensor
