i got the canon EF 28-135 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
with image stabilizer
“Standard zoom lens with an Image Stabilizer and high zoom ratio. With the Image Stabilizer turned on, you can obtain sharp, natural-looking pictures in dim lighting without using flash or a tripod. Very handy for places where flash is prohibited. Uses ring-type USM for swift, silent autofocus and full-time manual focus. Closest focusing distance is 20 in. (50cm).”
woah. this baby makes my camera one powerful toy!
i have to now slow down in dressing it up — with the 50mm, 18-55mm, 28-135mm and 70-300mm, i think i am done.
