Awaiting pics of Canon boxes taken with lenses at optimal settings on a tripod.

Sorry, but this is one of the most useless threads I've seen recently.

Sorry to bust your bubble, but my shot was handheld and taken very quickly..right place and right time...it does happen once in a while:D

what a relief.. I thought this thread was going to sweep the floor with my equipment (40D/17-55/70-200f4IS); however none of the pictures shown so far have a sharpness that blows me completely away, moreover, none of them shows a sharpness that I cannot get myself.

or maybe looking at rather small jpgs is not the way to compare.

I think the 28-135mm IS is the most verstile lens Canon makes. If it had a red ring and constant f/4 folks would be happy paying $1,200 for it.

It's not perfect as mine is almost 10 years old and drifts a bit. But I agree it's a great lens.

This is true. Your lenses are top notch, so you don't have anything to worry about. Get out and shoot! :)

If you stop down the aperature you can get phenominal sharp photos with a first generation 18-55 kit lens.

Thing to also consider is the colours and contrast straight out of camera. Those are also characteristics of a good lens.

I've taken beautiful photos with my XTI and sigma 18-50EX macro. Putting pixel peeping habits aside, as you print you can appreciate compostion and colours.

At f/1.2 wideopen my 85L blows me away with sharpness, colours, contrast and all of the goodness of a "keg"

Somebody ship this man a wet blanket, asap!

Love the pictures everyone! Keep them coming!

Great fun thread, btw.

I think only non-PP images should be allowed. It is about lenses, right?
