I got some sun (sorry my European friends!), and was able to get some better lighting and contrast.
I'm impressed! The center frame area makes this lens one of my sharpest. No kidding. The outer areas are a bit soft, but that's not what this lens is about. And the IS is just amazing -- some great shots in the overcast or low ISO over the last couple days. Some at 1/20-1/40 sec -- I'm blown away.
Here are a few at 300mm, with accompanying detail enlargement. All hand held with 1Ds2.
1/200 @ f5.6 (wide open), ISO 100
1/500 @ f/8, ISO 100
1/160 @ f/5.6, ISO 100
Here are some other colorful or contrasty shots.
(In overcast) 80mm, 1/30 @ f/8, ISO 100
300mm, 1/320 @ f/6.3, ISO 100
160mm, 1/160 @ f/5.6 (wide open), ISO 100
300mm, 1/500 @ f/8, ISO 100
A quick shot with flash/fill. Nice color and sharpness!
85mm, 1/60 @ f/5, ISO 100
Here's one with tungsten ambient and filtered flash. Pretty awesome sharpness (see detail's ambient edge hightlights) for 1/20 sec! This will be great for events or trade shows.
28mm, 1/20 @ f/5.6, ISO 800
