Re: Love note to the nit pickers.

Just looking at reviews and came across this , many thanks to the OP for the post. To those ' nit pickers' this is the simple truth.

The test was a valid head to head comparison of the two lenses in real world shooting and the F4IS is clearly better , although there may be some who are annoyed and own the 2.8 so will go all out with clever explanations as to why the tests are invalid - who cares- on you go.

In reality when i am photographing a wedding or event with this lens i am hardly going to stop and work out my hyperfocal distance or how close to focus and thereby miss the shot , i expect the focus to be where i put it and as much of the shot to be sharp as possible , this lens clearly delivers that, the 2.8 version does not.
