    Strong points of both the IS and non-IS lens:
    High contrast, high resolution images over a moderatly wide telephoto range
    Good out of focus blur when shot wide open (bokeh)
    Fast autofocus function with professional bodies
    Potential disadvantages of both the IS and the non-IS lens:
    Big and heavy (and costly)
    Non-stealthy lens (camera shy subjects will see your big white lens and initiate avoidance maneuvers)
    Strong points of the IS lens over Non-IS lens:
    Better low shutter speed performance on still subjects due to image stabilization (more keepers in low ambient lighting)
    Strong Points of the non-IS lens over the IS lens:
    The non-IS lens has higher resolution when recording on film than the IS version. This may be important if you shoot with fine grain film. There is no detectable difference if you shoot with digital bodies (applies as of 2004)
    The non-IS lens is less expensive
    The non-IS lens is lighter

    Another reason why i am sold to the Black.... imagine you shooting this beautiful gal then suddenly take out white lens....the gal immediately see and hides...Black lens better to take in stealth mode.....

    That's why I use a 400mm to snipe ... @ 200mm white or black lens would still be noticed.

    Which place u talking abt? According to acidbyte, best place to shoot is from Sheares Bridge, I agree with him. Last weekend we were on Esplanade Bridge, the low level fireworks were behind us.....
    Nowadays... soo busy with work and my grandma's birthday... weekends kenna caged by my wifey... I'm feeling like a caged jiao liao

    Also, now punggol kenna cleared like flatland... most of the birds also went over the other side of the causeway liao.

    BTW, you wan to come to my grandma's birthday celebration or not?
