You Nikon guys think YOU'RE waiting!? I started this thread half-a-year ago, and my Sony mount version still likely won't be here until late August or September at the soonest. Bah humbug! I am still looking forward to it though...and honestly I was hoping to have the lens by April 1 to catch our Spring migration and mating season here in Florida - once that passed, there's really no pressing need to get the lens any sooner than about September now - our summer is long, hot, and humid, and no rare or visiting birds likely until late fall...my current lenses can cover summer duties.
