    In my opinion ... (and I have been known to have a few) going to an airshow w/o a 200-500mm is an unqualified MISTAKE of a caliber I have yet to equal (and yes, I've made a few mistakes, too - but don't tell anyone).

    That one lens will be the source of rather impressive images to wow the young and make the old people say "My God, will ya look at the the lens on that fella!"

    If you are going to all the trouble to go to the PARIS Air Show ... get this lens and take it with (on an evaluation). It is perfect for those high speed runway passes and when the military pilot ejects and lets the plane go where it pleases!

    Remember: 200-500mm .. and ask for nothing else, because you just do NOT want to be there, when the plane "augers in"

    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.
