Last Jan, I got a chance to be a primary photographer to shoot Tet celebration http://www.tetvietnamsj.com/
at Saint Columban Church. It’s a small private catholic school.
Long story short, the Vietnamese parents did an outstanding job organizing the Tet celebration. They got strong supports from school principle and all the teachers.
As always, I brought all the gear I have including the 400mm f2.8 IS II to the event. I took about 700ish photos.
1. 85% of the photos taken with 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II combo
2. 15% taken with 50L + 135L combo
Shooting with 2 bodies including 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II combo is so much easy. Missing shots is almost impossible. I’m glad I pulled trigger on second 5D III.

These are just preparation photos. There are so much more photos that I wish I can share with CR community – kids getting red envelop, dragon dances etc…but I must respect the parents & students privacy.
Bottom line is: 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II is one GREAT combo
