@mark.t: Thank you, most kindly. I suppose that I am a dedicated maternal figure. LOVE babies of all ages and sizes, including infant 500mm f/4 super telephoto lenses whose Daddies are on vacation.

I'm glad to see someone is actually buying the 500mm. I hope many people are and that Sony continues to produce high-quality lenses!

I thought initially that it was 100 mm and some extra light that set the 500/4.0 apart from my 400/4.5 but after seing Ijsvogel's shots I realize that the bokeh is much better.

I've done plenty of shots quite with a similar backdrop as on the hare photos (grass field, slightly above) and while I'm happy with to 400/4.5 bokeh most of the times, grass fields slightly out of focus always look crappy. 500/4.0 performs MUCH better here.

Of course, it's a little bit more expensive...
