Lesse P. that was fast! How much have you find it for, if I may ask?

Have you ever owned a PF lens before?? I was thinking of doing the same, due to the weight and the longer focal length, but in all honesty, I was so disappointed by the Nikkor 500 PF, that I am not sure that the 800 will perform much better. I will wait for more real life image examples before making such a transition.

I just love the micro contrast of the Sigma! The PF is a fast AF, super sharp lens. That's if you fill the frame. Start zooming in or cropping and it all goes flat. Having said that, the 800 PF will have a better reach, so less cropping will be needed. Also as it's longer, it will achieve better rendering then the shorter PFs.

Nice having you with us and let me know how the PF is performing once you get it! When do you expect to receive it?
