I recently picked up the Nikon version (55-200) for the same price (it was discounted by $100 for a couple of weeks). It's not exactly a gem of a lens, but the 70-200/2.8 is too big & heavy for casual use. Occasionally, it's just the ticket. (For my Sony kit, I had a 3rd party 70-200/2.8 and the nice Sony 70-300G, but even that was on the big & heavy side and I'd toyed with the idea of picking up a cheap, light tele).

$144 doesn't seem generous in the first place?

When shooting a high MP camera like my 5DMKII this lens just doesn't make sense. I really want the IS version of the 24-70 EF L2.8 to be available ASAP.

Take note that this lens is the "original" version. There is an updated, version "II" out there.

Retail $400, regularly $199. So if you missed it, it's still not a bad deal at $199.

A $144 stocking stuffer?? All I ever get is candy.

This is much better for you.
