I have had this lens for a couple of years and really like it as lighter weight "walk around" alternative to the Canon 100-400L II. Seems to just fit on my old Rebel T3i

Doesn’t seem like we have a dedicated image thread for this lens so I’ll post here. Just completed my first vacation with this lens and I really like it. It is definitely better than the original version except built quality. It has the best video IS I’ve ever seen on any lens, let alone telephoto zoom. Much better than L version and quiet. For photos, I learned that it takes a couple of seconds to fully engage IS.

I continue to be impressed with this lens, given the price point. I use it often as a second lens/body for sports events when I need a second shooter

We have been in drought for over 5 months now and are facing water restrictions as Auckland's reservoirs drop towards 40% - they are usually in the mid-70% range at this time.

This is our first long weekend since Easter and the last for 5 months. It is also the first holiday weekend since our lockdown restrictions were relaxed, so of course everyone wanted to get out of the city. However, in traditional fashion it is raining all weekend - not enough to ease our water problems (that will take weeks of solid rain) but it all helps. So we stayed home and have kept warm, dry and unstressed by traffic jams from holidaymakers.

BTW, we look like we are leading the world in managing COVID,
