So your the guy that outbid me . That is a beautiful lens, you might call it the 80's/90's version of the 300 2.8, check out Jim Flinchbaugh's gallery on fourthirdsdotcom, gorgeous photos.

I have seen some amazingly sharp pictures taken with this lens. I was really wanting a bigma but I think this far outshines the bigma if you nail focus, In fairness I have seen Collin and Greg get some pretty nice results from the bigma.
Have A Great Day!


Greetings Darrel,

This was a private sale from a want add on the forums here. I have seen some of these go on ebay recently for good prices (and one that sold for $860 which I thought was high). I wish you the best of luck with acquiring your copy.

I'm looking forward to finishing my wood tripod to see if I can better nail focus and sharpness with a stable platform. I am guessing the learning curve is steeper with a lens like this than with a Bigma just because of the AF. And CA seems to be it's largest issue in certain lighting.

What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
