You know what? I'm on my 3rd copy of this lens, and I really WANT it to be sharp, sharp sharp, but I'm still not convinced. Zoom creep never a problem with any of them, but inconsistent quality has been, although number 3 is the best of them. It's great at closeups, but I struggle to get good DOF with landscapes (f11, tripod, mirror lockup, remote).
It's probably me, but this lens SHOULD be the ultimate walkabout on a crop body.

Well my replacement turned up and i get the feeling the creep will be the same with this lens.
I also have the feeling that this lens is a bit sharper than the first.
While ive been very happy with the old lens (even at 100% its looked good)i can help feel this one is just a bit sharper. Ill have a good play with it over the weekend and see whats whats.
