This morning I stopped by my local camera shop on my way home from volunteering at the Maryland SPCA.  I wasn’t looking for anything in particular – I checked out a few camera bags and moseyed on over to the used equipment case like I always do.  I saw a 70-200mm peaking out from behind some gear, so I asked one of the salespeople if that happened to be a 2.8 IS.  I was prepared for a no, but much to my surprise, the salesperson said yes!  So I scooped it up and brought it home.  Here are a few shots I took in the backyard while playing around with it.  I’m still checking it out to make sure it’s a keeper, but from what I can see so far… it looks pretty good to me.  What a great surprise for such a rainy day!
