I have this lens enroute...For those sport/action shooters out there, how well does the new IS system come in to play? I know it claims 4 stops, but this wont freeze motion blur. How are you taking advantage of the IS? Oh, I read somewhere that the new batch of lenses don't have code dates..so does anyone know exactly when these were manufactured?

I turn IS off for sports as it's irrelevant at the fast ss. Date codes were chopped some time in late 2010. It doesn't matter though.

Can't wait to put this baby to the test.

Some times I use mode 2 as well. I like it for panning.

A lot of us use single center sensor because low light sometimes confuses the technology, wide open with high ISO to get as much speed as possible. White light is a goes with. Gyms vary considerably in kind of lignt as well as amount of light. Some of the older gyms have hot spots. Look for them and use as is possible. The color of a wrestling mat can plus or minus a stop of light. My quality of images took a leap for the better with this lens. I still need to upgrade my body to have the best working package.

Just got this lens and I totally love it. Here are some pics from a hiking trip in Red Rock, just outside of Las Vegas. The tricky part was climbing up the rocks with the lens and camera. :D

My favorite pic from the whole trip; a picture of my brother and his dog.

talk about start posting with a bang. that's extreme! the only thing i would suggest is to maybe stop down some more to include the mountains in your focus, unless you intended to highlight the climbers in your pictures.

In the Northeast this was my very first shot with the 70 X 200 F/2.8 IS II. I went to Mpix and made a major enlargement. It hangs by my native cherry drop leaf 1880's dinner table. There was a goodly amount of CS4 into pole wire and cable removal to clean this image.
