Thanks lads you guys just made me think long enough so I didn't do anything stupid. A few dollars more and I have a good lens, it's just that I was in a hurry since I have no lens for my 501 yet.

So it's not worth years of feeling funny with a lens when it will only save me a few months now.


BTW Mongo your link makes one think...... maybe I can even shoot with the lens hood still on.
