I got my lens last Thursday, I also have an XTi. I don't know yet if I'm happy with it or not.
Cropped, sharpened anhinga, shot thru some weeds.

Now this sandhill crane shot I am impressed with, I shot it through a fence.

I just can't decide if I like the lens or not. It focuses super fast. This is my first L glass and certainly my most expensive lens, so I'm maybe expecting too much? Opinions would be wonderful!
On most of the shots, except the sandhill crane, I used the Kenko 1.4 pro extender. Thanks, anyone!
