Happy Birthday Mark. Wish you all the best, with lots of lenses (superb quality, of course) and exceptional cameras (Sony, of course :wink: ).
Many happy returns my friend. :D

Hi everyone, what a great supprise this morning :D Thank you all very much, I appreciate it!

Well Doc, I think the stars alligned today because this morning my loving girlfriend had a great present for me: a 70-300G :D
Now, that wasn't a big supprise as I asked for a contribution because I didn't know what else to ask and the lens is way too expensive as a present. So all the money I got from my selling other equipment went to her. I actually had enough for her to get me the lens as a gift. Pretty sweet isn't it! I'll be using it in stead of the 70-400G for shooting birds on holiday, as the 70-400G is a little bit big and heavy for traveling. I can honestly say my a-mount collection is almost how I want it to be. Only thing missing is a 35mm-ish fast prime.
It wasn't over with the lens however. It was a pretty big supprise when she got another gift, which turned out to be a BlackRapid RS7 strap. I was very supprised at that. Great morning it was for me :-)

I'm working at the moment but will give the lens a go this afternoon.
