Is stolen camera gear really a big issue? I've been worried about it as well as I'm going Europe (the land of theft) next week for a whole month. I don't have any whites but i do have a L lens...

For travel photography IS could be an issue, but most of my subjects are static, like buildings or mountains.
Hmmm... On the US Canon website they call the 1DX as the "ulitimate" EOS. Maybe ultimate means "X" in Japanese.
This lens has always been dead to me, given I own a 24-70mm f/2.8L. So it can go away quietly for all I care.That's the point. Lenses like this are dead to us, but they are also dead to the masses. I really do think that almost all of the consumer grade primes, except for the gateway nifty-fifty—will disappear. There are too many options for consumer grade cameras and a DSL + cheap prime is a loser in the marketplace. People who know about primes know about the good stuff and are more likely to be willing to spend to get quality glass. People who don't know primes think they are some kind of weird, hobbled lens from the 1950s with no possible use. To an extent they are right. The 28-135 is f3.5 at its widest. That's only about half a stop, you get USM & IS, you don't pay a ton more and you have way more versatility.
Nice honeysuckle, though.
Being a shutter-count paranoid that I am, I would have difficulty putting that much mileage on the body for 1 project. Nonetheless, truly nice work!
I don't really want to go APS-C and then change again.....
