I've been using my push-pull since 1995. Too good for me to justify upgrading to a 70-200vr II, considering the cost.

I have only just got mine but really enjoying it.

I think the lens has a sweet spot at about F4, when shooting people outside, like your portraits of people holding birds.

Thanks Craig, they were taking the hawk for a walk along the sea front and were happy to pose. The hawk comes from Saudi Arabia and I think belongs to a student studying in the UK it was very anaemic looking, but a friend said it was in good health.

I have tried F4 and it was very sharp, but will try using for a portrait.
