    Well a sleepless night, a morning of caffine and some peptobismol and here i am. Just back from the shop with the brand spanker 70-200 2.8 IS. Feeling buyers guilt at the moment. Very happy though. almost happy enough to photograph office supplies :lol:. I will post some shots soon. Love the build of this lens. cant wait to put it to work.:D

    Hehe you are going to have fun with that lens :)
    Come on come on get some office shots up ;)

    (and I know very much how you feel - the only difference being that buyers remorse is far worse when the item has to come by post - postmen are never fast enough!)

    Congrats!

    When I bought mine, it came via UPS. I wasn't home and they driver put the package in a window well on the side of my house. WTF?

    If I wasn't so honest, I would have reported it as missing and made them pay for another one.

    LOL Mike. I dont know if my ethics would crumble on that one.

    On a side note. Is it normal for the IS to be noisey when engaged? Nothing rough, just like a computer processor doing its job. Just wondering if its normal?

    Yep perfectly normal sound - its actually not as loud as you think when you shoot outside - just indoors when everything is really quite is about the only times I really notice it.

    Yup, you should hear it 'sort of click' when it engages, 'whur' when it's running and also hear when it stops.
