Re: My first impressions - and some info...

Checked on a few more things.

1. My B+W polarizer vignettes from 28mm- 55mm. B+W make just about the thickest ringed filters around. You should be o.k. with a slim Hoya filter. Get a slim filter without front threads and you'll be fine. Resist the urge to go to a larger filter if you intend to replace the hood for the actual exposure - it's not going to fit over anything larger than 49mm. My B+W vignettes only the very corners, but it does so with a vengence.

2. I checked again and can say with certainty that the metering system does not follow the flex focus point.

3. I've given more thought to the "Zoom Issue". Considering the amount of extension of the lens at 200mm EFL there is a considerable change in the volume of the air contained within the assembly. The "feeling" is most certainly due to seals/o-rings that prevent dust and debris from being sucked into the camera when you zoom.
