Sold my mark I last week. Decided to buy it off Amazon and pushed the Checkout button today. They had 1-day shipping for 3$ totalling $2303. Can't wait to see how sharp this thing really is. :D

You'll love it ...

I traded in a bunch of stuff today and have just snapped a few test shots with my new zoom. :)
I can see already that it's *way* sharper than my old zoom (which wasn't the best compared to other copies), and it has much less CA too. Can't wait to try it for indoor sports where I've until now had to use primes because the zoom sucked so badly wide open.

Congrats. I'm getting close to buying one too. I just have to decide if it's worth selling my 135L.

I love this lens so much if I had to choose between the wife or the lens sorry honey I have a new wife LOL But this lens is so sharp and the only times it's not is because of the idiot standing behind it
