It's worth it. What I do is...one less mod = one more lens! And the lens holds its value significantly better anyway.

I would personally get the IS F4 over the 2.8, the reasons being: A) it is the sharpest of the 70200s B) Color and contrast might be best also C) It is lighter and I carry enough as it is. D) I rarely want to go anywhere near 2.8 E) Wildlife at 200 is going to require use of the IS, not always but will save some shots, especially at 100+ feet out. No one can figure out if you need IS without really looking at what you shoot. My thought is IS on a UWA not neccessary, on 200mm and above a must if you can afford it.

I'm pretty close to snagging the LaForet 3day workshop videos talking about dSLR cinema, sharing his techniques, and teaching us the tricks of the trade. Let me know if you want me to post 'em.

Thanks fellas...guess I'll wait for little bit longer and save up for the IS. Or sell my tokina 1116 f2.8 to make up for the difference. I found that I barely use it. Besides, I might upgrade to a full frame when the 5dmkiii comes out...mkii prices should go down by then. So I might not need the tokina

It is a very good lens and in the top of the line but going by IQ not the best. Only the 300 2.8,400 2.8,500 and 600 are the Canon IQ superstars. Which is why they cost a pretty more than a handful large.

Perfect Kevin. With that strong back lighting the eye and feather detail would be nonexistant without the +EV.
What is that goofy chick? Did you see adults around. Is that a hummer of some sort? Dave

Probably this years crop of Annas, it wouldn't look so terrible if it wasn't scratching. It poofed up to scratch itself, otherwise it would look normal. See the leg scratching? The other one is in the Evoke emotion thread.
Yesterday was play with the 300 day and I guess at least one Allens moved into the neighborhood. In 11 years I've only seen an Allens twice.

I wish they had the 15% off sale on the refurbs like they did 2 or 3 weeks ago. I totally missed it by several hours. Would've bought the whole inventory! I wish; but definitely would've picked up a body and a few lenses...
