Playing around with the new 70-200 f4/L lens I just got. This lens is tack sharp!

Very nice DOF in #1 and 2. Do you recall what you shot those at? It just impresses me becuse apparently the lighting was pretty poor.

Dang, images are super sharp. I wish I would have bought the 70-200 instead of the 75-300. Nice Job.

I agree!!! Pontiac had a great idea and could have done great things with the new GTO but they really dropped the ball on this one. I have a '69 GTO that is all muscle. It is pretty bad when a Honda Element grabs your eyes faster then a "muscle car". I guess that explains the sluggish sales for the new GTO. I bet in less then 3 years Pontiac "redesigns" the GTO with some body lines of its heritage.


However, the pictures look great.

Shame, I could never see myself buying a Pontiac.

However, the images are frigin sweet. Realy sharp. This is the same thing I have experienced with my 70-200f4L . It actually makes me look at non L lenses a bit different. Wait till you take a photograph of a person, and use a flash, so you can see the flash light in their eye. God it's amazing.

Definetly some nice image you took there, the quality is really good.
Now I just need my 17-40L ..

the 17-40 f4L has always been on my hit list, even though I admit that I am happy with the 18-55..

If I had taken those pics with the 18-55 and resized it for display here, you prolly couldn't tell any difference... But the L lense looks better attached to the camera.

Cool pictures, How do you like the Element? I was looking into one of those not too long ago.

Nice cars.
