Thats my goal to shoot nearly the entire plane with the 40.

I think I can do it in a year with 3 trips.

January in Namibia, August in Namibia, then the final section in the northern hemisphere around xmas.

Hi Chris, I chose to do it with f/1.8. I see no logic in doing it at f/2.8, what do you think? Vignetting is really small and field curverture can be compensated by focussing carefully. But this can be tricky like I experienced in an ice covered sezzion. I tried to get 40 min for each frame...
