      I like taking shots of wildlife and with this lens I take more than my card will hold. It is a fast lens and very acurate. It would be nice if it had Image stabilization. Do to using this lens I am looking for a very sharp printer that matches this lens.

          This lens is awesome. Not L glass but you can't tell. 1:1 macros are sharp with great color. Also takes some good portraits. Lens can be used as a 100mm prime. All around great lens. USM focus is quite so not to scare tiny creatures. I highly recommend
