Thanks for sharing. Hope you can post full-size photos. But it's indeed damn impressive at f/2.8 wide open. Although I like my 24-105L but I know this is the lens going to be my new walk-around zoom hopefully before my next major trip. Everything is better from this lens - natural sharpness with creamy smoothness, bokeh, macro contrast and better colors.

Just one question - do you feel you miss 'IS' sometime?


I do.  But it is not as big a deal as I thought it would be.  Think of all the sharp pictures that were taken before IS was even available.  There are ways to cope, probably 90% of the time.
