Solomon, I took maybe 6 shots for the group photo. I was not the primary photographer, so it wasn't critical I get it

there's so much separation in that group shot, it looks like they were pasted on the background ... nice!

how far did you have to step back for that? it's good that the other photogs (with the shorter focal lengths) got out of your way.

I was probably ~40 feet / 12 meters away. Quite a good distance. We were out on the golf course while the bulk of the guests were enjoying the reception inside. 85mm would've been a more practical focal length for such a large group, but still get the tele-compressed sort of look. It was a fun experiment though

I've shot group shots at f/2 before, but usually about 6-8 people wide is as comfortable as I am with doing so.

JT- EXIF should be intact, but yes, f/2.0. They were far enough away to keep everyone in focus

The EXIF says f2 / ISO1600. Wow! Really dark.

Some more randoms over the last 2 months. It's my job to keep my biggest thread anywhere going Last two posts are great- the cars and the model. Naturally all these are shot at f/2. 5dMkII

I was just looking at the image comparison at http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Canon-EF-200mm-f-2-L-IS-USM-Lens-Review.aspx and there doesn't seem to be much of a difference between f2 and f8. I mean obviously, there's a difference, but f2 - f8 provides brilliant background blur, ya know? Which do you prefer, like super background blur, or super duper background blur? I'm just wondering how you guys determine what aperture to use? If I owned this lens I would probably just keep it at f2, ya know? Ha!

I think I have the 200/2 at an aperture other than f/2 about 1% of the time. I think I used f/8 once for a lens test shot.

Oh and the funny tidbit, the first 200/2 I bought was from Brian at the-digital-picture.com (I later sold it, as I had a 300/2.8, but came back to the 200/2 about 8 months later)

That's pretty amazing when you think about it, I mean those shots are soooo sharp, and they're mostly at f2. That says so much about this lens. The simple fact that you can take f2 for granted and know it will produce incredibly sharp shots. I mean, on my 85 1.2II and my 70-200 2.8II I don't just walk around shooting wide open. I shoot wide open when the situation calls for it, but when I want the sharpest shot possible I close my aperture a bit. And I'm not knocking the 85 or the 70-200 because both are very respectable wide open, I'm just rambling on about how good the 200 is wide open I have the money to buy this lens at the moment, but I just can't pull the trigger. But that's a subject for another thread

The only time I didn't use f/2 on this lens was when i switched from a slower lens and forgot to open it up.

Canon should default aperture to max after one switched lens in Av mode!
