Whoops I did it again

Yesterday I saw that my photo shop had a used 28-70mm F/2.8L lense in the window. So naturally I went home and had a look if their price was reasonable - and it was. I have been looking for a walk-around replacement for my 28-135 IS USM with a better overall quality. I had decided that I would save up for the 24-105 F/4L IS USM - but this was less than half the price of the new lense, and a stop faster, but without quite the same range and IS.

So today I took the lense for a walk, to see if it how it was, and if it was ok. Beside a few scratches on the lens hood, it was perfect. Good range, good AF speed and very sharp from F/4 and up. So I got a good price, a UV filter and took the lense. And here are some of the pictures from the walk:

I apologize for the slightly tilted images - I seem to be a little off center today.
