It came in and looks much better in hand. Still quirky..
Comparing it (to memory) to the limited edition (I think nickel plated) collapsible one I had, the cone head version has incredibly silky smooth and perfectly damped focus and aperture rings. Just on the right side of heavy.
Interestingly the aperture ring is now clickless, but the weighting of it means it will never accidentally move. The old rattly aperture ring is long gone!
The fly in the ointment? I bought this used and I noticed there is a small bit of something dead center in the lens behind the front element. It will not effect pics but B&H never disclosed that..
I'll take a closer look to see what it is (I'm assuming a dust particle) and decide a course of action.
