Review Date: Jun 3, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Build quality. Pin sharp wide open. IS
Cons:
Heavy

Only had this lens a couple of weeks and got my first real outdoor use yesterday in very overcast conditions.

Was not expecting much as conventional wisdom dictates that it needs a lot of light - especially at the extremes.

However, my first attempt included this shot at 400mm and this is a 100% crop. I used a monopod with IS on. In better light I do wonder ...

Pros: Superb IS Light weightI
Cons:
Lens cap extra.


Sold a very fine Sigma 100-300 f4 EX APO HSM and purchased this lens for its weight and IS.

I have not been disappointed. Mostly used for distant landscape out of my study window so far, which is a very good test, I have been delighted with its hand held capability at 'max chat' (300mm) and low shutter speeds.

Canon have done the business here.
