(whispers) Do it. Do it. Do it. I’ve had my 70-200 2.8L IS for about four years now and it’s pretty much the best thing ever. Superior bokeh, effective handheld stabilization, and a reasonably useful range on a APS-C body. The best part is being able to back way off of your subject so candids are much more natural and the longer reach flatters most faces (makes ears and noses seem less prominent, in particular) and yes, it is heavy, but you won’t begrudge the weight.

yeah, get it – my second favorite lense
the normalizer is down, but it has the best error message i’ve seen in a long time: “Dreadfully sorry, looks like we’ve hit a snag…”

I ran into a couple problems with Messenger and the Safari beta. The main one was that chat windows no longer scrolled to the bottom upon receiving new messages. I fixed it by changing the scrollbarUpdate function in Yahoo! to the following:
function scrollbarUpdate() {
document.body.scrollTop = document.body.scrollHeight – window.innerHeight;
Was there anything else in Messenger that the Safari 3 beta broke for you?

I’ve got the Sigma 70-200 2.8, which is just as good, but I think it’s even heavier. I love working with it, but when I do so outdoors people comment on it all the time (“Oooh, that’s a big camera.”). Sometimes I wish I could switch off comments off line as well as online. 😉
