Nicely captured, Brian.  Is this the original 40-150mm f/3.5/4.5, or the 
later f/4-5.6 model? I've got one of the originals, and I really love it.

Evidently the original model didn't sell so well because they were a 
little bigger and heavier than the "market" wanted, and the front 
rotates while focusing. This has never bothered me. John Foster of 
biofos.com compared them, and found the original was significantly 
better optically. I got mine barely used for a song also, I think $80.00 US.
