    Waiting for this to pair with the new 85mm f1.4is. Add the great 16-35 f4is and the really good 70-200 f4is + 1.4ex and on Monstro you have 16-280is covered.

    WOW! Didn't know that. That's a good news. Will wait and see. It would be nice to have that IS option along with f2.8 :)

    Just ordered mine this week and looking forward to shooting with them. I've had Canon L series up until now, but I don't find them fast enough. Excited to test out the Sigmas

    If they made the 24-105 a 2.8L, I'd be in heaven.

    "IS" lenses have a much more complex inner electronics and components that render the lens a little heavier and not as sharp, even so the latest lenses in the Canon line up are doing wonders, yet the None "IS" versions of the lenses when available are always best.

    While having a "IS" lens has its benefits in some Still Photography applications, I always preferred NONE "IS" when available, as they are always the sharpest, and lightest of the two, and don't use "IS" in high shutter Still Photography, and definitely didn't see any benefits in Motion Capture with the RED cameras.

    So my vote goes for NONE "IS".

    Careful about that Sigma 50-100 f1.8 Art zoom. It breathes like an 80-year-old with COPD. Indeed, I have never seen a lens with such severe breathing. Never. I found it completely unusable for that reason, but then we just make dramatic features. I suspect it would be perfect for talking heads.

    The 18-35, however, is a thing of beauty. We sold three Canon L lenses (16-35, 24, 35) because of that lens and couldn't be happier. If they ever kill that breathing, we'll be all over the 50-100.

    Thank you Ketch for your advice. Didn't think about it like that and sharpness is important to me when shooting.
    Which ones from Canon L`s you can recommend? Preferably zooms as I don't want to travel with so many lenses but I want to have a decent focal range :)
