We got the 70-300!
9 months ago

Arrived in the shop yesterday, collected it today!

Quality-wise, it is better than the 32/1.2, smoother manual focusing than the 32 (that says something, doesn't it), and feels a solid as a rock (all metal, bar the inner barrel, and lens hood). Superb, in every way!

The entire lens feels Leica, and weighs like the HD DA55-300 (if any of you have handled that sweet lens). It has a focus limiter, of course, and the latest lens coatings, of course!

Some test shots from inside (the very first shot!), and outside the camera shop (totally unedited, the gulls cropped):
