I suppose that for Loyd and anyone else shooting full frame, we should also be discussing the new 16-35 IS.

The bottom looks really green to me, and there's some detail lost on the front of the Amtrak unit.

You might want to wait and see how the new 16-35 f/4 IS performs before pulling the trigger on the 17-40.

The 10-22 (for crop sensors) also now has a much cheaper, smaller, lighter, and probably...

Well that definitely makes me think more positively about a battery that's only $7.95 on Amazon, perhaps I'll give it a shot if I can't figure out what's going on with this Duracell.

Thanks for...

No, I can second that the IS kit version is a good starter lens at least. I started out in August with the 18-55/55-250 set and it did a good job, although the bug bit me fast to upgrade. I replaced...
