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

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.

Some people like it, some don't. Differences are the way of the world and it's what makes things interesting.

Whoops! This is the Canon board. Sorry, these were taken with the Nikon 70-200 VR2. Hope you don't mind me mucking in, but I was really enjoying the photos and wanted to get involved.

It is easy, morenoar. In this special case it is different. Not the photographer does the pic. The lens does it! Like you could see in the last post with a 70-200 2.8 one can get great shots even with a Nikon body ...

Some nice stuff on this thread

I'll add a few here. Most of these are really fast-grab "portraits" because my children have unlocked the secrets to perpetual motion. All on 5D.

I thought I'd contribute to the thread I started, though not sure if this falls directly into a portrait.

Taken, actually, with a Nikon 80-200 f/2.8 from the 1980s on my 60D.

I'll play as I just love this light bucket, 70-200 f2.8L IS on a 5D Classic.
