    I asked for this lens as an xmas gift and mentioned to my sister to drop the hint that it's a lot cheaper online. So she had my parents order it from B&H.

    Supposed to be an excelent way to get to 300mm if you're on a budget.

    I played with one in a Ritz Camera store and liked how it felt. And even tho it's not a real indication, I did a search for the lens on Flickr and liked what it produced. This would be my first lens apart from the kit one.

    Supposed to be much better than its non-IS counterparts. That lens I believe has one UD element in it.

    i have one thats been a paperweight for years :o
    AF/IS mechanism is damaged, probably not worth getting fixed.

    its ok in good light, but awful in low light.
