It's not as sharp as I'd have liked (OK so the 280 APO has spoiled me) but 
the shoulder stock and monopod make a huge difference.  Lurking LUGger 
Forrest Herr should have a photo of the 560/shoulder stock/monopod and its 
operator in the midst of the Dipper's photo session.

The water is something the 560 does.  I *** LOVE *** what this lens does to 
OOF water ripples.

Thank for looking, and for your kind remarks.
