GALLERY IN PROGRESS . . . . I rented this lens the end of October 2006 for 30 days from lensrentals.com & fell in Love with it. I bought it in January 2007 from B&H Photo. It is my #1 "go-to" lens. The only Negative was this lens quit on me in October 2011 while I was out shooting(lucky for me I had my 28-135 IS lens with me). When I sent it back to Canon the repair bill was around $325.00 - NOT good, but it's great to have it back & working.
