Re: Thom article and the 200-400mm

I should be getting my 200-400 within a few days, once customs has cleared it. I read all of your arguments and counter arguments with interest. Many true things were said. We all have a lot of respect for Thom. Most of us also respect the opinion of Bjorn Rorslett. They differ in their evaluation of these lenses. Michael Weber hardly uses his fixed focal length lenses since he got the 200-400.

I think you guys talk too much, and shoot to little. There seems to be a trend to 'popularize' a lens, and then everybody jumps on the band wagon. Sooner or later somebody 'debunks' the same lens, and everybody says the same lens is junk! (200-400 and 70-200 are prime examples).

Lenses will always be updated, improved (hopefully) etc. Just stop talking so much and get out and use your lens. The results should speak for themself.

Have fun
