Yes, Don's camera with a new passenger ...
so... yes, Virginia, you can add this one to the gear list ...
Got a two-year, anti-drop on it, too. It weighs more than you think, believe me (35 ounces! That's more than the Tokina 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6).
Respectability is pricey

How many lenses can you say that about?
