They're loading on both my laptop and iPhone... Is there anyone else who can't see them? Maybe it's just temporary?

It was temporary. There they are! The bokeh in the second one is particularly rough. The last 2 are nice. I like the shallow dof!

The bokeh is a little rough indeed, but there was a very low, harsh sun shining almost directly into the lens, so I reckon it's a good result...

Wow.

Those are inspiring shots Bjorn! And the lens really is as sharp as they say it is!

Very impressive.

It took me nine pages to get convinced. That is slightly above my average. But nevertheless...it is here now. Big, heavy, fast and sharp. The focus-speed is so fast (and silent) compared to the 16-80. Also, it seems to handle closer distances to subjects better, though minimal focussing distance are approximately the same for both lenses.

Happy.

Congrats mate! Hope you enjoy it (more than I do...)!
May I ask what you paid for it, you living in Holland as well...

It's a great lens!

Thanks.

I paid 1550 for it. That is the one disadvantage of this lens.

It will complement my 70-300G very well :D

how much did you pay bjorn?

man 1550 EUR seems pricey (it's $1599 USD here), then again the A850 is 1,999 EUR/USD.
