Man, the lighting makes the car look so vivid!

I love LMB's ability to color shift in different situations, I've had people call my car black, dark blue, and "ocean blue" before. Your photos are a great examples of how versatile LMB can be.

Nice lens...but my 16-35 already has a much wider aperture of 2.8 so the IS wouldn't help. A bit higher ISO would've helped but I try too hard to stay under 400.

If I didn't have a full frame as my new main camera (unlike the 50d used here), I'd probably get this lens ...amazon has it for $580 which is pretty cheap compared to the L glass I am used to going broke for.
