    I said that package sucked but just on price alone compared to the Nikon package of relatively the same mm, but if you can afford it, this is a great option. Canon and Nikon are equally great.

    Geoff: I would love to see some of the images shot with this, if you don't mind posting some. I love photos. *sigh*. I can also post stuff if you like. (is there a photography thread here?)

    The advantage of both lenses is them having image stablisation.. it's worth up to 4 stops.. although typically I'm finding it worth 2-3 (or none, somewhat randomly ). It's not L glass.. but it's cheaper and light.. a great walk around.

    Yeah, the IS in the Canon is the VR in the Nikon. I wish they would all just use the same terminology...

    beautiful image, Geoff! (did you use a polarizer?)

    Nope, just a UV filter. Polariser is too tough on available light for a zoom lens.

    Here's a polariser on the L glass (17-40) lens.

    (bear in mind these are downgraded jpg's at a smaller size)

    By adjusting the white balance...

    Jesse Jackson was not pleased that I was taking his photo. What a death stare, huh?

    Tripod.. slow exposure... then change the white balance so the yellowy white becomes green?
