A nice lens but the extra stop is not worth the loss of range and IS (not to mention $2,300 when a good filter is included).

But you should have known that before you bought the lens; the specs are well published.

What exactly did you expect from this lens? Care to post any pictures to illustrate your point?

There is a context to my assessment which you seem to have missed.

To repeat for you:

This copy does not have better IQ than my 24-105.  If it had better IQ then the "package" would be worth it.

What did I expect?  IQ that was appreciably better than my 24-105.

No time to post pics and quite frankly I am not sure that they are necessary.  My post is simply one persons individual experience with one copy.

Given that it is generally accepted that the new lens has much better IQ I thought an experience to the contrary would be of interest to some.
