I'll post more later this week...

Interesting. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Got the lens back, Canon claims they could not duplicate what I illustrated on the screen capture video when they (supposedly) tried it themselves. Funny, it still does it here just like it did before... And they go on to say "it performs as it should". So this one is outta here and all I can say is my experience with Sigma repair was light years better than my experience with Canon...

The bozos at Canon repair can't even do their customer survey right. They email it before I even get the lens back and now that I have the lens, the survey link is expired. But then, maybe they have a reason for doing it that way and they don't want their bosses to know the truth what a customer thinks about them?

Never again do I send them something out of warranty. They just take your money and give it back the same condition you sent it in. Which is sad, it is a great lens when it works.

And the Andromeda Galaxy..... not just for things small and/or close.....
Wow! That is cool! On the iPad I can't see the Exif. I'll look at it later. Really curious about the settings. It looks very crisp.

Yeah I'm a little confused. EFIX reads ...

30 seconds, f/5.6, ISO1600 (via EOS 60D), 400mm (via 120-400mm)
... which I presume is the EF70-200 @f/2.8 + 2X TC

Surely the EXIF info is amiss. Apart from the wrong lens for the discussion, there isn't remotely enough exposure time for that outcome.  :-X

Exif is wrong, (was 30 seconds), but rest is wrong... was 400 5.6 lens shot at 5.6, 1.4 teleconverter, 5D2, ISO 3200 .... posted wrong image. I will remove post and image and stick the right one on tonight when I get home.

Most inappropriate use of macro lens.... instead of something very small or very close, something very big and very far.

The andromeda galaxy.... The image is unedited from the camera jpg, with the exception of cropping to the center 50% to meet website guidelines. The shot was taken an a very clear night, handheld (with the help of a tree for bracing) with a 60D, F2.8, ISO3200, 10.4 second exposure, no image stabilization, manual focus, and no flash :). All image settings were neutral or camera default.

Normally I can not spot andromeda with the naked eye but this night was so clear that it was easy.

this lens and the 14L are ALMOST all I need (and a camera body) ... maybe the Sigma 35

I was thrilled when they added I.S. 
same sharpness as the old one..... but now a bit more flex ...

don't use a tripod at all...not even with the old one

Some of bit unusual uses of this excellent lens, shot handheld (I had no room for tripod) stitched from 3 to 7 exposures. For whole trip it almost didn't go off my camera.

I just LOVE when you click zoom in LR with a photo from a great lens and that perfect sharpness pops up.  What a great feeling!  This shot definitely has that zing!
