One of the sharpest lenses I have ever owned!

Truely a top shelf lens. I had an EF 300 f2.8 non-IS lens & this lens is sharper. OS works great & focus is fast. I also owned the 2nd generation EX DG version of this lens & this is by far better in everyway except weight. Focus is very accurate & dpendable. The finish is very smooth & feels like a quality finish. I have not seen any CA or ghosting with this lens & it is as sharp as most primes ..... almost as sharp as my 70-200L IS II. This lens also works very well with Canon EF II converters.

Cheers, Jon

Problems:

Weight .... I am getting used to it.
