It's just a beauty and I hate to part with it, but my assignments are
changing and I'm not shooting as much heavy duty indoor where I require
the 2.8  and weight. Monopod or not. So with the change of assignment
demands to more out door venues I'm going to switch to the 80---200 f4.

Hopefully I'll not have any regrets. I'll not have any with the 80-200,
as I've used one extensively and it's just a cracker jack piece of
glass. And wide open?  It'll knock your socks off with  sharpness.

So that's the only reason and if I find it necessary to go back to the
70-180, so be it I'll just get one and get on with life. :)
