Canon 28-135mm f3.5-5.6 USM IS- this is the lens I use 90% of the time...(Paul UK, why don't you use this lens much?)

The main reason is the IS goes into spasm at the most inappropriate time and I miss shots. I heard this is common for this lens You can feel it buzzing and any picture you take is blurred. It doesn't matter for architecture or landscapes, but candids wont wait for the IS to settle

Thanks for explaining, Paul (UK)!

Well I'm glad I never experienced this as a problem. Most of the time even whenI take "quick candid" shots with IS on my photos don't get blurred.Maybe I got a friendly / lucky copy of the lens. It's true I do hear (and sometimes) the lens at times, but most of the time my IS seems to perform well and very quick! But I'll keep an eye on my lens. I'm very glad with it... and hope to remain so for many years!
