The lens I got was horrible. Worse than the 70-200L f4, strong vignetting, bad sharpness in the corners and awful chromatic aberration. I sent it back two days later. It sounds like I had a bad copy.

Yep, that was a bad copy. (I'm interested in why you didn't try for a good copy? )

I was one of the first ones to have it, and there wasn't much in reviews and such, so I figured the lens was a dud, and gave up on it. I learned my lesson, and will always wait at least a few months to purchase after a lens or camera is released.
