Hello Nassim, I am a big fan of your site ! I had a question on the Nikkon AF-S Nikkor 600mm f4 IF-ED II: I noticed on other sites/reviews that they mention a MFD of 6m and a weight of 5900g i.o. 5.6m and 4750g in your file. Would you be so kind to double check and let me know who is right ? Thanks ! Bernard
