p.1 #1 · OK, I want in!


This is no revelation for those who own it but, holy crap! The 70-200 2.8 II is an astoundingly good lens! I got a chance to shoot with one yesterday capturing some local volunteers and was stunned at the image quality when I looked at the files. I'm not allowed to post the people shots but here's one quick shot from the day, wide open at 200mm, ISO 400, 1/80. I've decided I want in 'the club' and as a result I will post a link in the next couple of days to an on-line auction for one of my kidneys in order to raise funds to purchase.


The jpeg does not do this justice but at full size, wow!

I totally agree with you. Exceptional lens. I love mine and it's on a 7D all of the time.

+1, It's even better if 5D2 did not burn her right hand with its famous shadows noise

Got mine today along with a 5dmkII. I compared my "sharp" original 70-200 2.8 IS and was surprised at the amount of difference between the two lenses. Getting the 5d and the lens together saved me $400 on the lens!!! I wouldn't have gotten it if it wasn't for the rebate.

You are correct. When you first get your own, you may be amazed. After you use it a while and see what it can really do you wonder what took so long and why your other lenses don't do as well.

love mine, just wish it was 2-3 times longer

Cam, yes the lens is good, although not as good as some folks would lead you to believe. For one, I prefer the Pipe's bokeh.

The 70-200 II is the supertele of zooms, definitely a 10/10 lens.
