The long awaited 80mm arrived today Saturday, good oh.
Impressions so far are good, hefty beast but so far I like the handling it doesn't feel that heavy, the focusing ring is firm to move but smooth. The Aperture ring feel is a bit on the soft side but ok, I would prefer a more positive click, but hey. focusing is fairly fast, not lightning fast but quite quick! Personally I prefer the handling to that of the 90mm.
Not too shabby, Mike. But I bet it is not nearly as easy to shoot one-handed, as I can do with the 90mm. And since I do not need extreme close-up capabilities, I can do without toting an additional half-pound on my treks.
