    Well I realized that I've been very good to me this year so I thought I deserved to buy me a really nice Christmas gift:

    [​IMG]

    Canon 70-200mm F2.8L IS.
    It arrived today so I took it out for a little walk lunchtime and it's everything I hoped it would be and then some, the only snag is that now I want more "L" glass and my other lenses don't look so good.
    One other good point...I use a Canon 10D with the battery grip and two batteries and with that lens on it I get a great workout for free!
    Guess I'll have to be good to me some more.

    I guarantee you'll love it. This is my favorite lens that I carry (and yes, it's darn heavy).
