    thats good. The second time I got it back from canon they replaced the lower part of the barrel/case. I have no idea what was wrong, but the zoom felt better after that and the focus is more accurate

    Pretty nice. I played with a 70-200 f/4L IS over the weekend while shooting a girls' soccer game. The school newspaper apparently uses that and a 50mm f/1.8 both attached to two 20Ds. The 70-200 felt really, it's fast and quiet although I kinda expected more for the price. Then again I only played with it for like two seconds. In any case, congrats

    I guess, unless the guy didn't know what the hell he was talking about and I ended up using the same one 94lsnblown just got. I only talked to him for a couple of minutes so I didn't look at it much. I asked if it was the one is IS and he said yes, but he didn't seem to know too much about it. I have a Nikon so I dont know too much about Canons either.

    :werd: I dont have a monopod or anything to support it, its pretty hard to hold it still and get a good clean shot at night, plus I just shot it really quickly

    The lighting is just from the lights in my room, my walls are painted like a dark orange so everything has a orange tint
