Comments:

To get the sharpest picts., even though the IS works great, you have to remember the old rule to have your shutter speed match or greater then the focal distence of the lens. In this case 300. Use a tripod for the sharpest image and you do not have to turn off IS on this lens.

This lens is without a doubt the most versatile and consequently the workhorse of my lenses. My husband and I travel in a motorhome, primarily during the day. The wide focal length of this lens allows me to focus on things inside the motorhome then turn and focus quickly on distant things flying by on the outside of the motorhome. As long as there is enough ambient light, I am able to take amazing travel photos. My 7D offers good ISO range and speed to help. FYI: The manual instructs the user to turn off Image Stabilization if the camera/lens is mounted on a tripod. Be use to do that! This lens is a crowd stopper. One thing anyone using this lens needs to be aware of is the fact that the focal length is moved by a barrel, not a twisting motion. Therefore, after loosening the barrel to move the focal length; you must tighten it back down or hang on to the barrel while it is lose enough to slide in and out. If you are the type of person who tends to drop equipment, forget to lock down things, or lend things out; don't get this lens. I very, very, rarely let anyone handle this lens. It's expensive, heavy, and takes wonderfully crisp and clear photos.

Weight is the biggest issue. You can tell you are carrying quite a rig. However, weight helps to stabilize the camera in my opinion which aids in reducing blurred images. Also with IS you can take some really tack sharp hand held photos. I had this out in a once in a lifetime rare Spring snow storm in McKinney Texas (North of Dallas) on 3/21 (had to use a UV filter to protect the front lens) and this lens performed perfectly even though my hands froze. Wind was blowing 40mph so I had my hands full composing the photos I took, but it was FUN!
