My post was not intended to be bragging about testing a lens and returning it nor did I buy the lens with the intent to return it.  I purchased it based on the good reviews with the hope that it would add a tool to my lens collection . However I was merely pointing out that, in my opinion, the value was not there for this lens.   It is a very good lens but I did not feel the value was there after testing it for several days.

It is an expenive lens - but if you didn't already have the 70-200mm F2.8 + 1.7 TC, I expect the value proposition would probably look a little different - especiallyif you mostly wanted to use it over 200mm.
