    I couldn't resist, here's my reasoning:

    1) The 400/2.8 IS is a fantastic lens, but for AFL I find I am always coupling it with the 1.4x if the light is good. As good as this combo is, I really wanted the right tool.
    2) I got it for under USD6k plus shipping (approx AUD8.8k delivered including all duties). It is a refurb but indistinguishable from new.
    3) I am starting up a lens/camera rental business (already had my first client) and this will legitimise the line-up.
    4) I am an L'coholic.

    Impressive product shots mate! Side by side it's hard to believe anyone complains about the 70-200 f/2.8 as being to big and heavy.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one looking forward to seeing your shots with the new family member- you do have a nack for making those big white things really perform at their best!

    It won't be long before CPS starts calling on your for gear.

    eeekk...that formal pose looks a little precarious given the foot they are standing on. Lucky none of your little ones (kids) were running around at the time.

    Nice collection! And here I am hoping I can save up for a 70-200 2.8 IS before my Sept 15 wedding.

    ...hmmm wait...so what's your rate to the US?

    Can't wait to see what you capture with that bazooka...although, your daughter is getting close to that dating age. I think you'd be able to stay at a safe distance with that thing and keep eye on the young mates.

    CW- You know you're starting to get carried away with your glass collection when you have to consult your manual to find the minimum focal distance before taking a moon shot!
