From DPR
DPR has completed their review of the new EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II.

The review is very favorable outside of their opinion of the bokeh. I didn’t find it all that pleasing either.

Overall, then, the EF 70-200mm F2.8 L IS II USM gains about as close as it gets to an unqualified recommendation, given the price. Its combination of exceptional optics and quirk-free design even manages to surpass Nikon’s equivalent that we tested recently, stealing the crown of ‘Best in Class’ by a whisker. It’s a significant improvement over what was already an accomplished lens, capable of consistently delivering results that will satisfy the most demanding of users, and you can’t ask for much more than that.

  1. 7D is faster, more accurate focus etc, and that is definitely NOT a small issue. I hate watching a good shot pass me by because the camera is not ready. Do not underestimate this.

    5DII just has great image quality, better control of DOF, and makes full use of your FF lenses.

    There’s no perfect camera. I truly like the 7D too, but they are different. The main reason I wouldn’t buy a rebel is ergonomics. The 7D/5D are much easier to use, if you tend to use most of the features.

  2. Sure, it is not a paysite but again, it isn’t ad-free site either. Site owner chose to display ads instead of charging the visitors. If you dont understand hoktar’s question, ask for clarification or better read it twice

  3. I agree, but there still are times when (say) f/2.8 speed and a deeper DOF are handy. Hence the greatness (IMHO) of the 1.3 crop for sports.

  4. It’s not a real question. He’s using retorical questions to have a good ol’ whinge.
