The 70-200 is my favorite lens to shoot pretty ladies with.
And all that insane sharpness that people buy this lens for is completely obliterated by post processing
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.
Stan was just being facetious.
And for me, those are sharp.
