    Never heard of the 20 - 200 2.8L, assume you mean 70-200? Great pictures by the way, even if they are of the Braves.

    Don't take this as a shameless plug, or an attempt to hijack the thread, it's not. But if you Atlantans (I work in Lawrenceville) like baseball, please check this out.

    http://www.safeattheplate.org/

    - It is a Christian event.
    - It is free, but I'm sure that donations are accepted.
    - There will be many free things given away that day (signed baseballs, cards, maybe a jersey or two).

    I've been to a few that they held a really long time ago, and I've gotten to meet Smoltz, Pendelton, and Bream. It should be a really neet experience if you're interested. I may be there, depending on how the move goes and what not, so we could all possibly meet there.

    And the pics look great.

    How do like that lens w/o the IS? Can you take handheld shots zoomed out?

    I have the same lens (non-IS) and I think it's fantastic! You can hand-hold shots at any range without blur if you shoot 1/200sec or faster, and with the brightness of this lens, that shouldn't be a problem for any outdoor or well-lit room. I was at a Blue Jays game a few weeks back and was able to shoot at 1/800sec consistently.

    The following are some sample hand-held sports shots.
    Motorbike: ISO-400, 200mm, 1/1600 @ f/2.8
    Baseball: ISO-200, 200mm, 1/1250 @f/2.8
    Both: Canon 20D, 70-200 2.8L
