    agreed! faster shutter speed is the way to get sharp image. IS sometimes can help but very very limited. IS only effected in certain range of shutter speed, slower or faster than that range make the IS useless . pushing the histogram to the right but not clip the whites to get the best exposure( for RAW) will give you the most details and lowest noise you can get.


    finally understand something like this after one year massing around and there are still lot to learn.just like this forum and the "work shop" Joel.

    I think you have made a correct decision putting your money on other more important things. IMHO, investing in real estate, stock market right now is better than putting money on a long lens, I just condn't resist when I found some cash back program can save me 5% plus ebay gave me another $100 extra saving if I buy it by the end of the year of 2010.


    you will make me jealous when you get the one of the version II later[]
