I have ow gotten it out, checked out and beginning to use. The weight and size are a real breakthru for hiking. Great image quality as well.

Congrats kayaker353 on the new lens.  I received mine yesterday and performed AF fine tune adjustment following Steve Perry's procedure.  Default of zero offset with my D7500 works beautifully.  I will fine tune D750 next.

To the folks on this thread, I plan to use the lens while hiking; I am ready to install the Hejnar replacement foot and am wondering, how safe is it to suspend the lens from a camera strap using only the QD socket in the foot?

Is one attachment point sufficient or should I also attach to the camera base plate?  Is having two attachment points overly cautious?
