Default Car shoot coming up - a few questions...

Hey everyone,

I have been doing some automotive work the past couple of years...

I have a shoot on Sunday where I will be shooting my car and and two others. I have my 7D, 24-105, and a sigma 30. I am considering renting a lens... For my last shoot, I rented a 70-200 II, and a 10-22. I really liked that combo. I have rented the 70-200 twice, and it really puts a smile on my face every time I use it.

Here are some samples from my last shoot:

The rest can be seen here:

I am leaning towards renting the 70-200 again... Good idea, or should I try something else? Any critiques/comments on my last shoot? Thanks!

The first ones have way too much stuff reflecting in the bodies for me, but #7 has cleaner highlights & looks better IMO.

IMO there are way to many reflections in the paint. Very nice cars though

Two stunning cars, but you should use a polar filter in combination with multiple exposures like I show in the tutorial linked.
