  1. FINALLY!!! There's a reason 70-200 was popular, now we have it back! I'd be content with the Sigma, but Canon, Nikon - are you listening? This focal length is crying for EF-s IS and DX VR versions...

  2. At a constant f/2.8 VR or IS would be much more expensive and make this lens much more a specialty item.

    As is, it will probably be within my wallets reach.
