Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM

ef70-200lisiiu_586x225
Review Date: Jul 17, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Resolution, fast AF, sharp even wide open, best IS, very good bokeh, improved lens hood
Cons:
Price, Weight

I tried this lens for a few days, and I must say this might be the best zoom lens out there. No doubt the best lens I have ever used but also the heaviest and priciest. That's why I will keep my 70-200/4L IS even if the image quality of the 70-200/2.8L IS II is a bit better.

A few shots taken with the 5D:

Canon EOS 5D

Review Date: Mar 14, 2009 Recommend? | Price paid: Not Indicated

 
Pros: Full frame, Image quality, bright viewfinder, high ISO capability
Cons:
lack of weather sealing, AF could be better

I moved up from a Canon 20D, I won't look back. The 5D produces an awesome bokeh with L lenses, especially L primes really shine on this camera. Dust can be a headache, I wished it had more AF points.

Review Date: Feb 8, 2008 Recommend? | Price paid: Not Indicated

 
Pros: best walk around lens for the 5d, it really shines between 35 and 70mm, L colors & contrast, IS is a life saver
Cons:
some CA, waiting for a 24-70/2,8 IS with hopefully better sharpness & resolution

most of the shoots were taken with 1/20 until 1/40
