That's because you love birds, your 400, and already have a 200 2.8 and the keg ;)

OP- You will love the IS a lot! It's a life saver when you're at ISO3200 and 1/20

No, it's because I just don't want that lens, and I never would want or need that lens. I wouldn't want it even if I didn't have my current glass - I don't spend that kind of money on slow, big, expensive, optically inferior (relatively) zooms, don't need 'em for what I shoot. I'll take primes anyday, even cheaper ones. Some people do need zoom and that's cool - to each their own, but that's off topic.

But yes - to the OP, you will probably love this lens!

Why don't you just kick it up to 6400, or 12800, or {GASP} 25600. :p

A noisy shot is better than a blurry one (most of the time).

Eh, my 400D only goes up to ISO1600 ;) 'ISO3200' was an ISO1600 underexposed 1 stop and pushed up in lightroom so yeah.

Don't ever ask me to try shooting ISO12800 on my 400D :lol:

Err... ISO3200 does exist on the 40D. I never use it but you have the option to use it (in camera that is... not having to push it up 1 stop in LR).
