Awesome shot Tim - one of your best of this style!

Pin sharp from front to back which is quite some achievement and the background is to die for!

That new Canon IS can take shots when I can't on a Monopod! It seems to gather more light than my Sigma 150 also.

... admittedly it is easier to hand hold a 100 Wink

Yes what also makes the Canon 100 IS great is it's very light weight even for a 100mm lens.

Sigma talked about a 150 IS at one point... that would be tempting although I doubt it has the same quality of stabilisation as the Canon.

Yes they have a 150IS but don't think it's yet available to buy. Like you, I don't think the IS will match the canon.
