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

neuroanatomist:
I started out using this lens on my 7D, where to be honest, I found the focal length to be a bit 'awkward' - often too long for indoor use (where the f/2.8 is useful), often too short for birds/wildlife.  I found it most useful for outdoor event shooting.  However, once I added a 5DII to my kit, the 70-200mm focal length became a lot more useful, and the f/2.8, excellent IS system (the first shot below was a 0.5 s exposure taken handheld!), and ISO capabilities of the 5DII make it an extremely versatile lens.

Here are a few shots to start off the thread, the first few from various locations in China, and then a few 'local' shots:

EYEONE:
I have the 70-200mm f2.8 IS II on a 7D and I find it quite useful indoors. It is too close for tight quarters I agree, but I've used it a good bit indoors and it works great if you have the room. But maybe that's because I'd rather not get in someone's face if I don't have to.

Those are great pics you posted. It's very sharp lens.

K3nt:
Got mine today! Will be posting pictures later on. So far, all I can say is WOW!  ;D

Oh, and excellent pictures by the thread starter...

Viggo:
Both shot on a 1d4 + 70-200 II. The AF when these two get together is better than anything I have ever tried, it demolishes my 300 f2,8 L IS in accuracy, and that is one freakishly great lens. I find the 91-260mm focal just right for fast action use. Perfect in studio with the 5d2, not so great on a 1,6 crop, to little background blur and just long and longer focal.

LOVE THEM ALL!  Good work!
