f/8 is the sweet spot (not sure how you even get to f/9).

I've been real pleased with my copy. Check out my flickr link if you want to see some pics. Unfortunately, after Christmas I'm going to send in into Canon for repair. Its suddenly become vary soft at 300mm with some strange haloing especially with with anything white. I think something is out of alignment.

Bummer about the softness and halo. Hope it's fixed soon.

Just picked up my first DSLR the Canon Rebel XS, upgrade from a Pentax W30 waterproof camera. Which will still get some use for underwater photography and unfavorable weather conditions. Here's a picture I took handheld with the lens at the 300mm setting from aproximately the minimum focusing distance at ISO 800 1/160 f/5.6 w/flash. So far I am very happy with the camera, kit lens and especially this one.

This lens, along with going digital right before my trip, was the best investment I made before going to Africa. All below are handheld, sometimes in a running vehicle.

^Found this big guy just before dawn, so shutter speeds were down to 1/15 and 1/30... without IS, no way this would have been possible.

All at a price and weight that makes it more affordable and portable than it's bigger L cousins. I absolutely love this lens.
