Only thing that I don't like is the 8.86 foot MFD. Sometimes I like to get close to my subjects (like butterflies) and over 8 foot MFD would not be good for that. But, otherwise, it looks very promising.


I always carry a 25mm extension tube for exactly the same reason, just slips in a pocket with virtually no weight or bulk to speak of. However, a 600mm lens at <9ft mfd should give 1/5th life size which for a butterfly would fill a lot of the frame methinks.

First get a pic, if it's still there, compose one!
