Just picked up one of these. Love it so far. Upgraded from the old model (Which I loved!).

Couple of tests....

I am considering this lens. Could someone post an action photo of a moving object at 70mm?

I want to hear from those who upgraded from the older version. I have the older version in NIkon mount and it is a SHARP SHARP SHARP lens with quick HSM focusing in all lights. I am curious to hear if OS and 4 vs 4.5 at tele makes it worth to ugrade.
