    Holy christ! How the hell do you carry this badboy!

    Haven't taken any shots with it yet...still at work. We'll see if it's sharpness matches my 50 and 105. If not, I'm sending this badboy back to pick up a 180 2.8.

    it does need a little sun to really perform. looks like you shook the first two with the canadian geese.

    You're on the money with the shaking...I'm still not quite comfortable hand holding this thing...My 18-200 is so much easier :wtc:

    It's quite a big jump when your heaviest lens is a toss up between the 18-200 and 105 DC

    try not to hold it so much as to just lay it in your hands, then tuck your elbows and keep practicing.

    My thoughts exactly...I "settled" for a 80-200 AF-S...cause I'm not about to drop $1600 on a lens when it's just a hobby

    you'll be fine. when i first got my 70-200 i didn't really think it was that big? maybe it's easier because its VR so its alot easier to get sharp images?

    shrug
