Still Thinking about it.

I have spent the day looking at reviews and full resolution photos from this lens.  It does look to be a good lens for a consumer level lens.  I already own the 40-150/2.8, the 300/4.0, and the MC14 and MC20.  So I got the long end covered.  I like that I could pair the 100-400/5.0-6.3 with the 12-100/4.0 to have a great range of focal lengths in two lenses for casual hikes where serious photography is not the objective.  Currently I am doing this with the 12-100/4.0 and the MC20 on the 40-150/2.8.  With this combo I am always wishing for a little bit more focal length.

Anyhow, it looks to be a good lens and it is great to have so many good choices.  Maybe I will pre-order it in the next few days.
