40D & 70-200 f/4L @ 200mm

Lovely shot, and lovely processing.  I went through to your Flickr and viewed the older version, which is nice, but the black and white makes it so incredibly crisp.

Edit to add one of my own:


Canon EOS 7D, 70-200 F4L, 200mm, ISO 800, f/5.0, 1/640s

I adore this lens.  It's my first L, and the quality is addictive (it's soon to be joined be the 100mm f2.8L macro).

50D + 70-200mm f/4 L (at various focal lengths) -

This was taken during an Oxford Flickr Group flickrnic (a bunch of photography nerds having a picnic in Oxford University parks with an eclectic range of cameras). This photo with a few others from the group landed up on the flickr blog -

This was taken in Christ Church Meadow on a very cold January morning last year on a whim -

And to contrast this was taken in Christ Church Meadow during the heatwave the UK had back in October -

I actually preferred the first rendition of the flag. The washed out red/pink seemed to go better with the tattiness of the flag - more than the red of the second version....

So you have an opinion on which option looks nicer and have decided to give bad Karma to prove how right you are. Was that what Karma was designed for and does that make this a better place to visit?

This lens is wonderful. I'm often shooting with my friend who owns this lens and the IQ is superb. We were doing some street/candid shots, horse parkour and portrait work - just amazing lens. For indoor shot I would prefer 2.8 non stabilized version or a 135 f/2 prime (to par with my 85 f/1.8 ). But for general outside usage it's just great.

What on earth makes you think I gave bad karma - I certainly didn't!
I would never smite someone for a photo I didn't like - I am over 12! (by a few decades....)

I would only give out bad Karma for unprovoked Ad Hominem attacks - like the one you just did on me (except I will be restrained in this case....)

I don't mind the edit of the tatty flag pic tbh. No skin off my nose, we all have our preferred ways of editing images. I've not really used photoshop lately, it's been all Lightroom 3, now with a dash of messing around with the Lightroom 4 beta.

awesome pictures, it makes me more sure that this is my next lens. We can't all be rich (as in allot of L-stock) right?  :P

Go for it, it's probably the best value L lens you can get.
I would like more L lenses, but can't afford any at the moment. My Uncle has a 400mm or 500mm L lens along with a 7D. I'm not at all jealous.

Thanks for the rowing photos.  Reminds me of my days at Lehigh and the early morning sessions in fall on the Delaware river

Just got my 70-200 f/4, used, but at a pretty good price.

Im already loving the L glass, and the USM motor   ;D
