Well I just got my A*300mm f4.0 back from repair for the second time.  I 
really have no complaints even though it took two trips, the cost for 
repair was very reasonable.  The problem was with infinity focus so I 
took it out to shoot a local Church Steeple, a target with reasonable 
amouts of detail near infinity.  The results were a thousand percent 
improvement over it's previous behavior.

I then made a test shot of a bust of the man the Town was named after at 
minimum focus distance, (about 4 meters), just to make sure that a new 
problem didn't develop.  It's not easy shooting hand held at minimum 
focus, the far eye of this bronze bust is actually the plane of sharpest 
focus.  But over all it's acceptable for a lens at it's widest aperture.

Equipment: K20D w/smc A*300mm f4.0.

As usual comments are welcome but may be totally ignored.
