Re: 600PF??

If a 600PF is announced, I will pre-order instantly and ask questions later. I have the 80 to 400 and don't think 500 mm offers enough gain. 600 would offer a 50% increase in image size, while a 500mm offers 25%. The practical questions regarding a 600PF would be answered while waiting in queue. I hope they move on this soon, or announce that they are cancelling their earlier announcement that they are developing such a lens. It was pre-announced before the 500PF.

The 500mm will not only deliver a larger image, but the IQ should be much better, too. Especially at the long end, where the 80-400mm is weakest. I think the 500PF will be the sweet spot for an all around tele lens. If I didn't already have the 500/4FL, I'd buy the PF version. My buddy is picking his up today.
