Wow, nice lens. You need to post some pics of that lens. That is great for wildlife and the outdoors. I wish I could take something like that to the zoo. Too bad I just blew $5500 on my honeymoon package. After my honeymoon I can get some new glass. My next one is 70-200 f/2.8 L

The 70-200mm f2.8 is a fantastic lens and you will own it as long as you own a SLR/DSLR camera.

As far as wide angle, I would go with a 17-40mm over the 10-22mm. The 10mm is nice but I have seen lots of images that are soft in the corners when zoomed all the way out.

There are good copies of the 10-22mm out there, just look around. Sorry, no side-by-side pics though.

the 17-40 that is deff a piece i want to pick up down the road a bit i would like to try a 17-40 and a 10-22 side by side just to see how they feel. I also had a bid in on the 85 mm but after i won this one i just let that one go cause i didn't have the money:D

once it's in my hands i'll post some pics with it.
