Bought a used copy of the lens for a steal as I'm going to Israel next week and I want the speed over my 24-105/4L

Took it out for quick test this afternoon at the gun club (my other big hobby):

Me likey!  (except the weight)

Back from the trip which prompted the purchase of this lens.  A few from the Old City and Temple Mount in Jerusalem:

Some great looking images.  I missed the ocular (?) light in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre on my visits to Jerusalem.  My last trip my Tamron 24-70 VC was my best friend.  So many cool things to shoot in Israel!

Hesitant to add these, but they do show what the lens can do just for fun, for family snapshots.  Until you travel with a baby, you really can't imagine how little time you have for photography.  No matter how beautiful the landscape, jump out of the car, grab a shot, move on.  If you know what's good for you.   ::)  Cades Cove and the Gatlinburg Ripley's Aquarium, earlier this month.

Oh, I totally can... I have a 1.5 year old and a 3 year old. Cameras always move low on the priority list  :-\
