Will do Henry - hoping the weather will cooperate (along with my schedule) over the next few days.

My very, very early thoughts on OS vs SSS are that the OS seemed to work a bit better than SSS - the stabilized viewfinder is nice, and I seemed to get better sharpness with the OS on vs SSS. But really still too early to tell.

Battery life seemed to drain pretty quickly with this lens - probably the combo of OS and HSM, along with plenty of chimping on my part.

Cool. Let us know more after you have had a chance to use it more. Also, it would be interesting to hear what you think of OS vs. SSS.
