    Well, I ordered a TAMRON SP AF 200-500mm f/5-6.3 Di LD from B&H Video, on Saturday night ... it arrived today, via UPS ... looking like this:

    then, upon opening said packaging ... I found this:

    BTW: If you look through my truck's windowshield glass ... you will barely make out the UPS truck behind it ... the golden UPS logo on the side, because I had the UPS driver "standby" as I "documented" and opened the darn thing. Happily, the lens survived this treatment. And, oh, speak of the devil ... here it is!

    One thing is for certain, it'll be a while before this lens suffers from "zoom creep" ... it's good and stiff.

    And this ... is my dog ... with that lens, handheld, cropped at 100%

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
