Several optional all-metal accessories are available to round off a sleek lens package, including the LH-61F lens hood (69.90) and the LC-61 lens cap (39.90)

Seventy quid for a hood is taking the ****, specially as it's not supplied with the lens. (It would still be taking the **** if it were supplied and it cost this for a replacement, but not quite as much)

But forty quid for a lens cap :eek::eek::eek: Fair dos, at least you get one with it, but WTF does a forty quid lens cap do for you?

And a "high-speed sports" lens that isn't weathersealed?

Sorry to sound so negative, but I found this to be such a disappointment.
