This 70-200/2.8 IS has been my main portrait lens for over three years on whichever body. Particularly useful for shooting people while travelling although I wouldn't mind having something faster (a 85/1.4 for instance).

I like it somewhat despite it being flawed. An instance when a 85/1.4 wouldn't have hurt.

Almost 100% crop.

Likely done with 2x TC.

While there are some nice images in this thread, I'm surprised at the number that have been posted that are seriously out of focus. Proof that it's all about the photographer and not the gear.

The 70-200/f2.8 lens is a staple for amateurs and pros worldwide for a reason...it's a great lens. But one still has to know how to use whatever gear they own.

And all that insane sharpness that people buy this lens for is completely obliterated by post processing

And there are seriously OOF (probably due to camera shake) photos as well!

Anyhoo, it's better to have an insanely sharp lens than a "soft" lens, as you can get soft-focus or dreamy images with a sharp lens, but not the other way round.

There is more to a lens than sharpness. While the 70-200 MkII is great for getting super sharp images it is also wonderful for images that are intended from the start to be softer. For me, the super fast focus, range of focal lengths, wide apature, outstanding IS and smoothing mechanicals are true assets. The fact that it can render super sharp images doesn't mean it can't fulfill other photographic uses where critical sharpness isn't the paramount concern or that one should use lower grade glass simply because they don't need the sharpness "feature" of the MkII.
