I rented this lens for my brothers wedding this weekend. Simply amazing. Now I just need to save money to buy one
And before anyone else complains about the weight, attached are pictures of my 10 year old that I let shoot with it during the reception. He was lugging it around for about two hours without complaint. (I'll be honest though I was SORE the next day)
I got one mounted on 1D IV; it s does an amazing job, focus quick and accurate, sharp lense, and a bit heavy for a long day of shooting.
Use it for wildlife,landscape, portrait, close-photo, and concerts.
Definitely like it. A must have if you can afford it.
Really enjoyed the photos on this thread, travel, wildlife, the living dead...didn't even know here was such a thing as a zombie walk.
Anyway, the IQ really does look top notch. I am happy with my old 70-200mm f2.8L, when it eventually goes kapoot I think I will definitely get a 70-200mm f2.8L IS II...mind you, by then I guess there will be an upgrade. Still, hard to improve on something so good so maybe no III versionfor a while.
