I didn't expect to see a reply from a message I posted three years ago...
Hmmm! As best I remember, it showed up in new messages this afternoon, don't know why else I would have seen it. Oh well, maybe the homeland security wiretappers are setting bits ...

I've resolved not to buy any more lenses until I get a body problem straightened out. I like the idea of being able to go to 1:1, but I also like the idea of being able to use the filters I already own on the f4 version. Given the roughly 2:1 price differential and infrequent occasions to go seriously into macro, I'll probably go with the older one if/when I get around to it.
