Drama, that moth shot is just fantastic. Keep posting!!
I really need to get a 70-200 - I just can't decide whether the f/4 IS is worth the extra money over the non-IS version.

michael, Image Stabilization can be very worth on telephoto with F4 when you zoom in, IMO. money wise decision is yours.

kuroneko, what a CLEAN and nice capture... how you achieved that effect of orange background? tell a bit of your experience with 40D...there are no full reviews available still.
Shark, your picture of a rose is nothing short of excellent, i feel i can smell the rose there.
Michael, nice shot, knowing how difficult is to shoot against the sun and get it right i can only say bravo to you.
Drama, another keeper from you, excellent capture.

I can see the shot now, love the colors
The 70 200 f4 is great value, I will probably pick up the IS version later
I love using this as my walk around lens, IS is very tempting
It is also supposed to be even sharper
That is a superb shot, love the tones & the composition

RedShark, this is nothing compared to what I’ve witnessed once in Viennese zoo. imagine elephants engaging openly on a sunny weekend day… that was smashing hit, men around showing keen interest in the process while mothers trying to divert the attention of their kids to something else…pity i had no digital camera that time (about 7 years ago).

Had some "wet fun" this afternoon with some water balloons, must have taken more than 150 shots and smashed more than 10 balloons.
And yes.. had to change my clothes at the end
