It's a fast focus lens.....

In comparison to what? This lens is great, but it is FAR from having fast AF.

Is that true? Even the dpreview mentions 'fast AF'. How would this compare to my 17-55IS ? And a 70-200/F2.8 Mark II (which I'm selling now).

100L IS is pretty fast w/ focusing if you have the focus limiter set for distance. But the 17-55 is still faster. The 17-55 is faster than the 70-200/2.8 II already. The only EF lens that *I* have personally experienced having the same AF speed as the EF-S 17-55 is the 200/2 IS.

Bought the lens yesterday, together with a 430EX II. Experimented a little with off-camera flash too. Hope you like these shots (mind, first use, so got a lot to learn)
