So a quick few thoughts

Weight

No issues for me maybe big for micro four thirds but about canon 70-200 f4 and easy to drag around for four days

Construction

Solid, lens hood design is great slides back and fourth

Focussing

One shot spot on no issues quick and accurate

Continuous was a very mixed bag from train crash ~50% success to 100% at airport including red arrows RAF display team. Tried all kinds of settings but couldn't nail it all the time. Maybe I was expecting too much
Jury still out on this one

With teleconveror

No issues seems very little effect on IQ, but like canon 300 with 1.4 convertor

So IQ

Well very very sharp centre and edge, with convertor still sharp

Contrast and colour very good

Details resolved very good

Price

With convertor 1250 so jury is still out but for a 40-420 f2.8/4 zoom it's almost a bargain I guess

More images to follow

Any questions please ask away

That is a nice lens. Will consider renting if and when need arises.

Hope you have recovered and are feeling great!
