Thanks, but I unfortunately returned it to its original owner not to long after purchasing due to the autofocus not working properly. :-( And it not being serviced by Canon anymore sucks. I was bummed, but hopefully I can find another working one possibly. if not I'm gonna look at the 200mm F2 instead.

That's too bad, and I do believe the first actual case I've read about where an otherwise good copy of this lens has had AF woes. :(

The f/2 is different to be sure. It is lighter, has IS, apparently slightly faster AF, but it seems to lose a smidgen of the magic.

But only a smidgen. ;)
