    I would have to dig in to it deeper, but my questions about it would be:
    1000 frame buffer, Raw+JPEG. Is that 1000 of the largest size files or lower settings.

    If you are looking to make money, do what you think.

    But if it were me, I would try and get some free chocolate.

    I am not a pro photographer but do eat chocolate.

    Maybe some of the comments missed this. IMO there is no contest, you need to go with the Version 1 of the 500mm.
    The 600mm Version 1 is a huge heavy lens. Over 11 pounds.

    Yes. It always seemed to come in to play with macro with narrow depth of field.
    Seldom with wildlife because the battle is always for more light so rarely do I get over f/8.

    Joel,
    With two days I would do the lower loop one day and the upper the second.

    Joel's PP definitely increased the desirability. Brightening the reflections brings it up dramatically.
    Although Joels' jpg was to small to really get a good grasp overall effect.

    Honest appraisal is I am not a fan. To much dark space, bird is there but doesn't really stand out. The bird feels like it is part of the background not the subject.
    You are right it is to dark.

    It has one glaring flaw and it has nothing to do with the spec sheet.
    $479 adapter to adapt to an M is overpriced, that is as much or more than the body you are attaching it to.

    Sounds familiar to the old DR discussions. Sony is obviously better.

    Smaller more efficient structure would allow for better handling but you end up with an unfavorable S/N ratio to deal with as pixels get smaller.
