    Macro or long exposure is the only time I would even worry about it

    @Butch, IMHO it's a good lens for the cost. I got it for almost $200 off the original price. It is a bit difficult to get a good exposure with it at higher shutter speeds because it is usually somewhere around f/5.6, but since it has VR, it does a good job handheld at lower speeds.

    @Devon, yeah, I was happy with the clarity of the lens. That was at 300mm and I was expecting more blurryness.

    I wish there were more interesting animals to take pictures of here.

    Oh my Av! That pic is just as pretty as the lens itself. Very nicely done!!

    My turn finally. I had ordered a Canon 28-135mm for my birthday. The filter ring was badly damaged so I had to send it back. I have the absolute worst luck when it comes to modern lenses (new and refurb). Just got the replacement in yesterday. It also rains without fail every time I get a lens in, so I finally got to check it out today .

    This one is straight out of the camera. No editing other than resizing. The rest are edited.

    I'm very happy with this lens. Sure it's not Canon "L" quality, but I'd say it's close enough. Certainly a keeper for sure.

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?
