Hello Xatnoc! I would second Ian's comment & say - it would be great to see the images taken with the lens.
I've seen few of them taken by a "virtual friend" and co-member here on his Flickr account... he has 2 of them: 125mm and 165mm if I remember right... and all the images he posted looked stunning.
On the other hand I would love to know a bit more about Ernostars that are longer than 18cm!
