Mongo has had this lens for a while but not used it virtually at all so has decided to sell it. Someone is coming over tomorrow keen to look and take it home if he likes it.
Nice day today so went to the local park and bid a possible farewell to the 200-400. So, oddly , today Mongo did stuff he never tried before with the lens. Not sure how it would go with 20EIII but would be happy enough with 17 EII. Mongo has previously tried it with 14EII and its great with that.
So, some quick test shots with 17EII. Importantly, when Mongo saw the RAW results on his screen, he decided he would NOT process the images in the usual way. Instead, he would only do the slightest of exposure adjustment only if needed and NO sharpening at all or anything else. So, Converted from Raw to Tiff then reduced in size and converted to Jpegs for posting. The results even shocked Mongo....... Hope he is doing the right thing
