Heavy (3.7 lbs) , poor IS, push pull focusing, to large a field of coverage, soft images. I put the 28-300 with the new 70-200 f/2. Failed white over priced junk. A retail price of $2,689.00 is a pretty good chunk of change. I also found the range very attractive. It is the best do all piece of Glass from "Canon". I rented a 28-300 for 1 week, put it through its paces,put back in the mail and never touched one again. I took my we will say $2,700 and purchased the 70-200 f/4 IS for $1,049 - $200 rebate. This left me enough to get any one of the standard glass in "L" Canon offers. Whether it is the 24-70 f/2 or the 24-105 f/4 IS you can not go wrong. Or you can go with the 100-400 f4.5-5.6 if you so desire to telesmash. Though I highly suggest renting the 28-300 to see if you do in fact like it, and it is what "YOU" want.
