      then again, you cant beat primes for sharpness..... but primes are big bucks to cover say the 8mm-400mm focal range.....

      yes the 2.8 is a hell of a lot of money with IS, but at that focal length the IS is a MUST isnt it, no way im the kind of imager to shoot with a non IS lens, u still going to get the 70-200L then, you thought about the 100-400L, im really liking that lens, i was speaking to a guy who had one at an air show a few months ago and my mouth was just drewling looking at it lol

      i was planning on using lenses with the astrotrac, but thinking i might be silly to get rid of my HEQ5 as the HEQ5 and DSLR/lens combo is a winner too......ahhhhh my brain lol
