Go past that 200mm and the IS starts becoming pretty important
I can imagine it would be be good for portrait shots. I tend to use my 100mm f/2.8 for that, but being a prime lens it's almost TOO sharp. If I'm a few meters away, in good light, and take a pic of someone's face, you can literally see every fucking pore on their skin. Which isn't always flattering Kick-ass for macro shooting though
Yea I love the Canon telephotos mainly because the nice ones do not have any external extending pieces, only the optics are moving. I think it provides a better picture, also the build quality feels better. I swear I could kill someone with that telephoto.
