It may well be a l-o-n-g time before we know how this lens will perform.

The only legitimate results will have to come from the usual test sites.

Any early reports from actual purchasers can't help but be positive as it is human nature not to try too hard to find fault in a purchase of a very expensive item.

With the availability of the Sigma 500/4.5, with it's proven abilities (I've had mine for 3 years), I think the price of the 560 would have to be reduced drastically in order to get much attention.

I'm interested in seeing how this plays out.
