    Highly entertaining Bryan.


    I wonder if this is just a big ploy by Canon to force everyone into buying lenses with IS. By drinking all this coffee you'll surely be as shakey as a leaf and need an image stabilised lens to actually get a decent shot. Damn marketing gurus - they've done it again!!! [][][]

    i can't wait till the f/2.8 version of this lens comes out... it will hold twice the liquid. []

    Wouldn't the f/2.8 version hold the same amount, but allow you to drink it twice as fast? [:P]

    Bryan, a great review!





    I am missing a through-the-focal-length coffee taste and temperature comparison. I guess they vary.

    Bryan, pretty good review, but I was disappointed... you didn't include MTF charts nor measurements for steam falloff. And if I load a mocha in there, does the lens mug suffer from sugar diffraction at f14 and smaller? And you didn't even mention flare... although that probably won't be an issue for me, I always use a Reddi-whip diffusion foam on the filter. However you did a great job covering the lens mug's mounting options. Anybody know if the Manfrotto 322 Grip Head can handle the weight on the lens mug when it's fully loaded?
