Re: Overpriced product - just buy Sigma 500/4.5

The 560 is labeled as an "HD" lens, and features the new HD coatings. The exterior design is new too, with a red "HD" ring. Is HD is the new SMC? Is HD above DA*? below? different? Who knows.

Still there are no other lens with HD coatings.

Miles, the D FA645 90mm macro also is HD coated (in fact it uses a combination of HD and ABC coatings).

It's not a *, either - it must be pretty bad
