Bought the first one in 2003 when I ordered my EOS-3, because B&H was out of the 28-134IS lens that day - it came a couple of days later. I paid $63.00 for it brand new back then. It literally came apart in my hands about 4 years ago(due to the lens being on my 30D & not in a bag or case & it got bumped pretty hard in the back of a friends SUV - totally my fault). Great lens & sharp for the money. Have very Few images from digital, but planning on getting more, as I found a used 50mm 1.8II for $75.00 in Mint condition back in August.
