Lovely MF lens with a great build, smooth and a fast MF ring and a solid Tripod collar. Even has a physical stop to quickly reach back a particular focus point. Haven't really tried this but can imagine this to be a helpful feature for bird photography with focus point of the perch marked to quickly get back to it. Reasonably sharp at F5.6 (Not as sharp as my Nikkor 200-500 F5.6 E lens) but gets much better at F8.

Here is a quick sample at F8 at a 35mm equivalent FL of 800mm at 1/400, ISO 200 with the GH5 IBIS helping to stabilize the lens.
