Nothing I could do about that.... the engine crept up behind me with out warning as she was running on a caution signal was almost silent running sort of just coasting.

I think that on photozone http://www.photozone.de there was something written on those lines, but I have a friend in our camera club who has the f/2.8 IS version who says his photos are pin sharp

Thinking of getting this lens myself due to its being lighter and cheaper then the f2.8 version.

Any tips for use of this lens, or how well it works with a 1.4x TC?

He is only 10 so jobs are a long way off yet... but I sort of have this gut feeling that Birthdays/Christmas lists could be a little different from now on.

What does everyone thing of the Non IS version. I really want a 70-200, and I'd love love love the f/2.8 but thats around 2000usd, and the IS f/4 is around 1000usd, where the non-is is only 579. And the f/4 doesn't come with the lens ring tripod mount (additional like 200) and I'd want that anyway, so why get the IS and that rather than the cheaper with it, and IS wouldn't be completely necessary.

Defiance: It's quite good for young ones have the opportunity to learn about photography. I wish I had the luxury to do the same when I was younger. Am sure your grandson will grow up well with photography skills. Lucky him and you too having the same interest.


Jake: I went for an F4 IS version for few reasons. The obvious is cheaper than F2.8 version. I also want something that is lighter and smaller in size but doesn't compromise much. Both IS version of F4 and F2.8 have weather seals. IS is not a must for me but it comes handy as my hands are not the stablest yet. In many ways, all 70-200mm L lenses are good but it's up to you to pick one that meets your requirement and budget.

Here is one of my shot that I really like taken about a week ago:

I bought my 70-200/4L IS USM a few weeks ago.
And i have to say. This might be one of the (if not the one) coolest piece of gadgets i ever bought.

The brillianse and buildquality is superb and it feels very solid.

The switch for autofocus-distance is very good, and makes the autofocus very very quick. I mainly shoot motorcycles outdoors, and this lens have no problem what so ever to quickly focus on a moving fast target.

I also like the feature to change between panorama-IS and full-IS

I have had a few issues with it not finding the focus spot on, but i think it's me and not the equipment.

I've also noticed that you gain much if you shoot in RAW and pull the RAW-sharpness up a tad when editing, or if you go into the camera menu and push the sharpness up a few steps.

Not sure if thats what folks have to do, but i do it anyway.

A few samples:
