I fully agree with the philosophy of carrying as much good glass as you can (without compromising the objective). These days for me it often means carrying a point-and-shoot plus an 11.5 kilo kid, but in the past I have been known to hike with a 70-200 f/2.8 in wildlife-rich areas. And a tripod for good measure.

My present "camera gear" load is about 15lb !!! (including a 70-200, 2.8, IS) Main reason why I don't necessarily need to go to the "top" of the mountain !!! LOL !!!

Great shots T2C !!! Do you have a Flickr site ??? (hint)...

Beautiful shots! (I also like the ones in some of your other recent posts )

The lens gets pretty good reviews. But just judging by the photos, I'd say it was a good purchase.

I don't have a Flickr site....yet, but will be getting one very soon.

It was a toss up for me between the f4 and the 2.8. Weight was the deciding factor. I went out with some friends the other day who had the 2.8, and I can say after picking it up that i'm glad I ended up getting the f4.
