    When I came home from work my long awaited lenses hade finaly arrived from UK. At first glance all looked all right although I do find the silverish finish of the lens barrels a bit strange. Hopefully they will deliver better IQ than AQ (Appearance Quality ;)).

    Unfortunately I will be working Friday, Saturday and Sunday and here i Sweden it is dark when I go to work and dark when I go home. Cameras are strictry NO-NO at work so I am stuck with just playing around indoors. One thing I noticed with the zoom is the really lousy lens shade. It is almost impossible to fit forward or reversed. Is it supposed to be like that or is there something wrong in mine? Perhaps it will loosen upp after a couple of mountings and removals? It is not at all like that on my SEL 18-55mm and the SEL 50mm/1,8!

    Congrats on the new lenses. If I remember, when my 55-210 was new it also had a stiff fit to the hood, but it loosened up over time. No longer an issue.
