Have any of you guys banging the drum for sensor based stabilisation actually used it in a dslr ? From my experiences with it it is not as effective as a lens based system, even with shorter focal lengths.

Took this one today. Not black and white (still feeling my way through the Lightroom presets), but not exactly colors either
Here's a recent portrait with the 135L (pretty much my favorite portrait lens). A little fill flash from the 580EXII, but other than adding a bit of vignette and slight bit of warmness, this is out of camera. Wide open @ f/2

more MP neither....
Good point there - I have to admit with my new 6d experience looking at the 60d crop shots my first thought usually is "oh my, what crappy iq" - but after some seconds I always realize 100% crop on the monitor is not the most important aspect, and if you cannot do nice photography you won't be able to with ff or high-mp ff...
It also seems to be a great moonlight lens.
I like to use it with a Big hood - three times larger than the lens
Nice shot of the Pleiades! They look larger than I would think they would be at 40mm...is this slightly cropped?

Unusual, but probably a bit more typical of what you see. I didn't manage to get anything this time, I couldn't really see the hills on the opposite side of Ullswater and rain and wind tend to play havoc with lens elements and filters .
Here are a some of my favourites from Scotland instead.

When Canon launched the 24-70 II didn't they state that the lens doesn't have IS in order to optimise IQ.
If I'm right and they did state this is there any truth in it ?
Yes I believe they did state this, but then do you believe everything a salesman tells you?
At 200mm, you must have been very close. Great images!
They started out reasonably far out, but once we moved out onto the Ground they came right in to Investigate.
The attached shot I had to ask my Lad to pass out to me the 5DMK III with the 24-70 on, at this Point the Alpha Female had decided to move on and was pushing the herd around the front of the vehicle.
Young chap in the Image is Greg DeToit, just won Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2013 in London.
Shot with the 5DMK III & 24-70f/2.8 L II, Shot @ 24mm f/7.1 & 1/1000th ISO800
If it's a mechanical issue (shutter problem, etc.), the likelihood of the exact same issue affecting two bodies simultaneously seems incredibly small
I was out of the vehicle down on the river bank shooting Elephants crossing the stream about 200 metres down stream, didn't see this Young Bull come around the Bend behind us, he didn't really see us until opposite us, then he just dropped his head & charged us, the chap with me Greg DeToit (He just won Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2013) stood up & raised his arms and yelled at the Young Bull, he eventually stopped about 5 Metres from us and kicked & blew water all over us.
