Now thats what I'm talking about. I was at my favorite camera store yesterday and was looking at lens's similar to a 17-55 EFS. My favorite lens I have is a 70-200 f/2.8 VR, monster of a lens and you get a workout everytime you handle it. I want to bring it, but I don't. I kept thinking, "I'll never get it out of the bag." Now that you say you barely used yours when It wasn't in the tank bag, I'd never use the thing. The 17-55 would cut down on the bulk but I'd be able to keep that sweet sweet f/2.8. 90% is good enough for me!
