I don't have it, but I came very close to buying it recently. I like the zoom range it covers and the reviews were pretty positive. Let us know how you like it. 

BTW, did you know most of us from T2i forum have moved over to facebook?  If you FB look for the Canon Users' Forum.

Pictures from the new lens or we won't believe you got it.  ;)
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Okay here's the constellation Orion shot with new lens.What I am interested in for this lens is whether he stars around the edges of the image stay more or less round. Sometimes in less quality lenses the stars  will be saucer shaped or pinched this was shot for 30 secs at f4,and lens at 34mm.

I am happy with this outcome
