It's one of my favorite lenses (also SN 74..., third sample being the keeper), though I don't use it as much as I should because of weight, lack of AF & automatic IBIS setting.

You're absolutely right: always having to set IBIS correctly (which I forget half of the time) really is a pain ... .
Like I said. The weight doesn't really bother me. I accept it as the weight of a light 100, a 200 and a 300mm lens in one.
I don't miss AF one bit for landscape, to the contrary, I find it much easier to set focus like I want it. 
What I'd love to have, though, is EXIF data.
