Nice shot!

 Manual exposure?  -EV at work? 

I love the darker exposures like this but only get them in manual...

Thanks!  No, this was shot in Av mode at f/4.0 with no EV.

What did you meter on and what was the WB set at?

I have my meter set to evaluative metering and my WB set on auto.  I shoot RAW so I just tweaked the WB in Lightroom.

Not sure what you tweaked, myself I often increase blacks... just seems to increase the "purity" of the image (like in yours) and remove Haze....

I just love this lens. I don't shoot a great deal with it but when I do, I realise how stellar it is in both functionality/handling and results. I need to find more excuses to use it...

I too love this lens and find that it sits in my bag and then when I get it out I wonder why I haven't used it more but then I have to say that about all of the lenses in my bag or at least all of the canon lenses. I guess that really I just need to shoot a lot more

Hey guys I need help with this lens. No matter how much I afma I can not get this lens to be sharp on my 5d markii. It's really annoying when you have such an amazing lens and it won't focus accurately. Now I can't place all the blame on it because every lens on my camera is at about +14. So obviously my camera is off also. Can I send the 5d markii out to canon? Or it and lenses?  I am worried I am just going to get it back and try are going to say they are all within our specifications.

Here's where NOT to use this lens.

This is the most hideous bokeh it's produced for me yet. The outlining almost looks like multiple exposures.

Avoid wide apertures with contrasty stuff in the transition zones, especially at or near min focus distance.
I've encountered plenty of other horrid bokeh scenarios with it too, usually at wider apertures it seems, but not at all focal lengths or distances.
Exhaustive testing won't be performed, just cursing when I see the results back on the computer.

Good thing this lens has plenty of redeeming qualities like incredible sharpness, speed and a great IS.

Here's a non-cropped shot from my 5D2

1/160s, f/4, 200mm, a few inches beyond min focus distance.
