One notch below - Canon 28-135 IS : This is a vastly underrated lens.

I would like this lens a lot more if it had newer IS. It takes a long time to spin up, and images shot during that time are nearly always very soft. I've tried "pre-spinning" to avoid this problem, but holding the button halfway down overrides the AF button on the rear of the body. There's no way to refocus without releasing the shutter button, at which point the lens has to spin up again. This is such a nuisance, I frequently just use it with IS off and take my chances.
