"Rumors of it's replacement have been greatly exaggerated" - Mark Twain

But seriously, there have been rumors for at least 3 years that it is being replaced/upgraded with IS, etc.  I honestly think they'll eventually release both a new version, and a version with IS.  When?  No one but Canon knows.

If you need the lens, I would get it now.  If the new version is worth upgrading to, you probably wont lose much (5% ?) when you sell yours since the new version will surely be significantly more expensive.

I especially like the second one (photoshopped in rain and all :) )

So you want to replace $10 worth of rechargeable batteries, with a $65 battery that has less capacity?

10mb/s isn't the fastest SD card. I have a 30mb/S SD card.

Watch your units.  10Mb/s is not equal to 10MB/sec.

30mb/s is approximately equal to 3MB/s which is class 3.

I would like to add that personal attack should be banned.

I would like to add the personal attacks ARE banned, and perpetrators will be dealt with accordingly.

There are several variants of the 75-300, but none of them focus very fast, and all are optically mediocre.  It's tough to tell without more details, but the T2i probably isn't your weak point.

Have you thought about getting a new lens?  The 70-200 f/4L USM would be better than the 75-300 in every way, if you can afford to lose 100mm on the long end.  It is also very reasonably priced.  Before you put a new body behind sub-par glass, I would suggest at least renting a better lens for a weekend.

it doesn't capture(snap) the movement as clearly as I would like.

Out of focus?  Motion blur?

What AF mode are you using?  What lens?

Compact flash is significantly faster than SD.

SD class 10 (the fastest you can get) = 10MB/s = CF x66 (probably the slowest you can get)

High end UDMA CF cards these days are up to x675 = 100MB/s.  Which is almost fast enough to shoot a 7D continuously at full speed (jpeg) without buffering.  If the 7D came with an SD slot, it would be unusable.

I normally use Chrome, but I just tested with Firefox 3.6.16 on Linux (Fedora 14) and I see no delays.

EF-S 50-135/2.8 IS ring-USM

If it's an equivalent build and optical quality to the 17-55/2.8, and a retail price of under $1800, it would sell like crazy.

I just realized I've been desensitized by recent "L" pricing.  $1400 would be much more appropriate pricing.
Looks like Sigma is first out of the gate

Hmmmm.  TC compatible too.

I don't understand people that play farmville.  People that play farmville probably don't understand why I come to CR 73 times a day.

I guess what I'm trying to get at, is that this site is for entertainment.  A place for individuals to get together and talk about a common interest.  And in that respect, for me, the site has been quite successful.
