Yes, (sigh) or even the 135 mm perhaps? The 70-200 non IS seems to be out of stock over here

The ef 28-135mm IS USM is not a bad option for dogs. Is is not as bright as the 2.8 but if you are taken the photos of dogs outdoors on good light days. It has a very fast AF motor.

simple,

If you like black backgrounds you can use spotmetering. I have basically never let a camera fire a flash so I can't give you anything on that

Yes, ok. I have a 24-105 L IS USM but it has never been sharp, never. Probably not the best copy Canon's own tolerances are far broader than their Service Centers

Thank you

I would send it to canon to have the L lens service, and see if they can resolve the sharpness issue.

The new 28-135 that comes with the 7D is better then the original 28-135 that were out in the film days. I have been happy with the one I have, it is pretty sharp, and fast in AF department.
