Awesome job Lance! Mine was supposed to be shipped to me the day they came out (NPS) but we had a hurricane on the way, I live in Myrtle Beach, SC now. I had them ship it to a friend of mine who owns LensCoat because he wasn't able to get his hands on one to make a template for the covers. I'm home now and he will be shipping it to me Wednesday so will have it Thursday.

Really curious about using the x1.4 converter and how much it slows it down. I have a 600VR but some days not in the mood to carry it around here when its 90+ degrees! Hand held lenses seem to be a better tool around here since lots of flight stuff.

Thanks for posting and hope you are well!!


Thank you very much for your kind comments and best wishes, George.

I know exactly what you mean about being less than inspired to take out the "big guns" on a very hot day. The same with my 400 f2.8 FL VR, it just doesn't seem worth it sometimes, LOL. In this case, you will *love* the 500 PF, just like carrying a 70-200 f2.8!

Look forward to your results and thoughts.

PS. Tell the guy who owns LensCoat that his products are good and I have one for my 400 f2.8 FL VR. A good company to deal with.
