Except the drain issue, are you guys happy with the performance of the lens?

well mine is going back to the place I got it from as the  VC is playing up. 3 times in the past week it's just stopped working and I've had to take it off the camera and re mount it.

Other than this I've been pretty happy with it. It's been sharp enough, even wide open. I'm in two minds as to get it replaced or go for a Canon MKI. If the VC has failed this quickly I'm not sure I'd want another that might also fail, but I really do like VC and this was the reason for getting this lens.

AF is also a bit slower than my USM lenses but that's taken for granted and its not really been a problem.
