Congrats!  It's one of my favorite lenses!  I don't envy the waiting period though.  It's always torture for me, even for the little things!  =)

I should be clear - it's a canon refurbished lens, so it's not "new."   But, a canon refurb with a year warranty is good enough for me.

Thanks - this is my first L and most likely the gateway to others.

Congrats! One of top three zooms ever made, after my 200 f2 decided to screw me over I really miss it. The AF will blow your mind :D

You won't regret it. It's a fantastic lens. Brilliant for portraits and sport. Takes the 1.4 extender really well. I haven't used a better Canon lens. I think it's the best of all (I haven't tried the 135mm but maybe someday )
