I just bought this lens today. I had never tried one before. As I was testing it before handing over the cash I thought that it wasn't focusing initially. It was amazing. It was like a completely silent and almost instantaneous focus. At one moment, out of focus, then next instant, magically in focus.

Welcome to L series glass with USM motors...they are crazy quiet. Enjoy the lens, its a great bargain, and underrated IMO.

I think this may be my first post to this thread - been spending too much time admiring the work of everybody else. Weather was so nice over the weekend I just HAD to get out and stretch!
