Just got one of these today.. what a treat! So much beefier than the 55-250 and very sharp. Gonna love this one too! Here is a quick early shot with a Kenko 2X @ 300mm. I had to manual focus and it is handheld. Underexposed it and had to bring it out but looks pretty decent IMHO for early test from an amature. This park is about 200 feet behind my house and you can hardly tell it is there normally.

For walking about or going on a short hike this is one of my favorite lenses; good optics and fairly light weight.

This lens is sharp. What's more, this was shot through a double glazed window..

Hi DrFingers... not to answer for MasterTech01 but I know this one :)

The "Magic Drain Pipe" is the nickname for the Canon 80-200L f/2.8 glass that was around in the late 1980's.

Thats the one Monkeyman806 :) Still adored by its users. But it is so heavy that I could not hand hold it and take sharp photos. But it is faster glass.

A couple from the St Patrick's Day Parade and the celebration at Trafalgar Square in London on 13th March.

The sartorial elegance of a silly hat:

Looking down from the top deck of a bus at the gathering parade:

Thanks. The second one is my favourite out of the whole set, even though it doesn't appear to have anything to do with St Paddy's Day. There's something about her expression, and the woman behind looking at her...
