Wow...She really cleans up nicely!!! That second picture of her is much better than the first!!! It must be the lighting in the second shot with the nice backlight. Cause that direct light is really not flattering!!!

Lars your photography is unique.

Each and every image looks like telling a tale… always a very specific impression. I am not a good writer, and so can’t express everything in words.

Here's a shot of my dog Sadie from six years ago. Unfortunately, she just passed away last week.
Good dog, Sadie!

I had the f/4 IS a while back, and these were a couple of my informal favorites:

First of all, many thanks to everybody for overwhelming response!

Yes! I wrote, “I will be buying two lenses very soon. EF 70-200L f/2.8 IS for human portraits and EF 70-200L f/4 IS for pets.” with a good humour, and didn’t have any other intention. As I wrote in the original post, I got inspired by 70-200 f/2.8 Portrait thread and wanted to see potential of f/4 (small and light weight) version in that regard. After a while, I could see only a few portraits. That gave me a feeling for a moment that only f/2.8 version could make portraits. However, I got pleasure of seeing some nice pet images posted by Jefferson. That lens quality was noticed by chance.

Hope to see more images...

Cheers!!!

Max

The only real difference between an f/2.8 lens and f/4 lens will be a difference in background blur (which becomes marginal as you get closer to 200mm) and a full stop difference in shutter speed. At 200mm, the difference between 1/200sec and 1/400sec could mean a lot.

The difference you're seeing between the portraits of the 70-200 f/4 and 70-200 f/2.8 may be that most professionals (or those that take the art form very seriously) will gravitate toward the f/2.8 version. As such, you will probably see a larger quantity of high quality offerings from the f/2.8 version.

But, otherwise, there's nothing preventing the 70-200 f/4 from taking great portraits.

I just bought a 70-200 f/4 IS yesterday, and spent several hours shooting with it on my 7D at the Woodland Park Zoo. Got home and viewed the images on the big screen, and...well....they're almost all front focused. I thought that was happening, so I switched to manual focus and those came out better, but still softer when wide open than I had hoped.

I'll do a MFA this weekend, and play with it some more, but if I don't get better results I'll be returning it. (I actually wanted the old 2.8, but Glazer's didn't have any left, and the Mark II was out of my budget.)

Not a portrait, but the subject is similar to some of the others posted here:
