Nothing so far

I did not know what to expect after recieving this lens based on all the reviews I have read here and other forums. I did not know what to believe anymore, so I decided to find out for myself. Took some sample shots of the street with my Rebel XT, and looked OK, but when I mounted it to my 20D on our recent trip the pictures blew me away. I read a lot of sharpness issues with this lens, but @ f4-8 it was up there with my 70-200 f4 and would easily compete with my 50 f1.4. I guess I got lucky and with an ultra sharp copy of this lens. Overall, very happy with this purchase. So far even the prints are comming out great. Here is a sample shot:
