my shiny new Lens just arrived, 15 minutes ago (what a cool looking lens), so took this shot quickly as the light is fading fast, in fact quite dark and overcast (its now raining!) which I think contribued to the noticable noise that you can see in the 100% crop, I would ideally not want to go higher than iso 200 if I can.

canon 400D set to manual, 17-40L at 40mm
iso 400
f/4
1/400
RAW (then converted to tiff using adobe camera raw plugin in Photoshop-CS2 on my Mac) no other processing apart from jpeg for this post

anyways here are the images, reduced to 30% and 100% crop

quite pleased with the bokeh at f/4, I was around 18 inches from the bird feeder, in fact I think the DOF is around 2 inches max at this distance at f/4 :eek:

for anyone thats interested I bought the lens from Jessops (UK) using this link:
http://www.jessops.com​/onlineoffers/ukcamera (external link)
which gives 10% off for uk buyers, together with my £70 Canon rebate it has cost me £428 for the lens :)

Those 100% crops look very sharp. No CA at all either, superb lens!
