    Hey, I resemble that remark. Thanks Rooz ... you do go out of your way to be cordial. Must be a real southern island kind of thing.

    i'm just calling it the way it is. i call nonsense for what it is...nonsense. there is no reason whatsoever for us as consumers NOT to be given this option. none at all. i have stated why it should be an option, perhaps you could give your reasons behind your vote rather than a short little quip of a poll that makes no sense to anyone except rabid sony fanboys.

    you like to throw out BS statements and hope they dont get called out. a bit like your line about the $6500 CaNikon stabilised 200-500 lens. you put a statement out there, but fail the follow up when you get proven wrong.

    Cool Extreme glass ... and a price

    Okay ... sorry ... it was only a Canon 500mm f/4, as I am sure I stated.

    and here's the link and here's the quote (portion):

    If the SONY α700 can pull off this kind of miracle w/o a high performance lens ... just think of what it can do for your own photography with the lighter stuff. I know, I do.
    Hell, buy two!

    EDIT: Price should be $5800, not $6500 as originally priced by Canon. That's $700 LESS, BUY THREE!

    ? he made it 3-3-0-2.

    ok, this is getting really pointless now anyway.

    It's clear that it should be put in.

    Cool Limitations is your options ...

    Nah ... they do not make one ... I have two flavors, though ... the 200-500mm f/6.9 (96 oz) and the f/5-6.3
    (43 oz).

    Canon doesn't make a 200-500 anything, anyway. Just the primes.
