I am currently abroad in Myanmar (former Burma). Internet in Myanmar is a major problem. When it works, it is so slow that you can't upload any pics, neither you can load any pages. Sometimes it takes up to 5 minutes just to send an email. That's why I am seldom able to post anything here at CanonWatch. I am using the lens while abroad in Myanmar, and I am fully satisfied (well, I am missing a more powerful zoom). More to come (Internet permitting).
Suprisingly, the only thing that really works here in Myanmar is Flickr (don't know why). So, as an emergency solution and in order to be able to show you my pics I have to use it. I do not have an account, all the pics are hosted by a good friend (thanks GrandWazoo). Check my Canon EOS M travel pics here.
