    Finally, no thanks to UPS. I had to go to the front office to get it, and I only knew it was delivered because of the tracking website.

    It's better than the kit lens. So far it's been pretty badass.

    I like the tracking site, but this is the second time that if I didn't check the site, I would of never known it was delivered.

    Nah it was shipped out quickly, they just had to have me send them a copy of my license or utility bill to verify my address since my bank doesn't do that for them. the part that sucked was when it was actually being delivered they went straight to my apartment office and dropped it off instead of coming up to my apartment. I kept watching the tracking website and it updated with "Delivered to front desk." I didn't even get a note on my door until about 3-4 hours after it had been delivered. This is the second time I've dealt with that from UPS.

    Yea I like the lens a lot, it was $230 from B&H. For that price you can't beat it. The USM is ultra fast and quiet. Color and contrast so far has been nice. It has gotten a little soft wide open though, that's the only major con I have. It's not that wide, but I don't make use of wide lenses often so it's ok for me.
