That's pretty amazing when you think about it, I mean those shots are soooo sharp, and they're mostly at f2. That says so much about this lens.

The image stabilizer actually makes a difference as it is canon's newer generation (like they have on the new 3/4/5/6/800mm and new 70-200).. good up to 5 stops... barring subject motion and a little bit of care, you can get crisp shots at 1/5 sec about 80% of the time.
