SWMBO gave me a slip for Xmas for a 200 f/2L. Not decided yet as I have an abundance of lens covering 200mm. IQ is excellent though - what a great capture too!!

Yes she is gorgeous, great capture!  However am I the only one in thinking the focus is sharper on the front of the camera she is holding rather than her eyes (maybe it is intentionally done like that... )  ?

I noticed that too.  Her face looks soft--but the pattern on the dress which should be in the same place does not.  A little post-processing going on?

Thanks willrobb, handsomerob, briansquibb and K-amps.

The first two images were photographed with a 5D2 using it's center AF point.

K-amps & thepancakeman, good eye. I was shooting at f/2.0 and did not crop so only the camera's in the DoF. As I am not used to shooting portraits with the lens I miscalculated the DoF.

briansquibba I would buy this lens if you need an extra stop of IS, an extra stop of light and the bokeh. If you need neither then the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM is more than sufficient.
