Well talk about quick delivery they have just come :)
im very inpressed with them a super bright image and very nice satin finsh ruber body, super smooth focus that seems to very precise .
Then when you press the IS button it makes all the diffrence to your viewing .
The image does at times just wonder towards the soft side as the IS does its work also the image can seem to be hovering but im use to that using Large IS lenses.
Anyone new to IS may at first find it odd but once you see how well the subject is steady in the field of view i dont think they would be to woried as detail seen from using IS is so much easyier to see.
Even without IS at aprox 220 they would still be good value IMO.
they are a little heavy but not that bad infact to me it makes them feel solid and well built.
A friend tried them he said WOW amazing .
Love them .
