Default 70-200mm f/4L Questions and Help me find a website!

How is the bokeh on this thing for candids? Does the 2.8 have significantly nicer bokeh at 2.8? Anybody have examples of either? How do these lenses compare when used with teleconverters?

Also, I'm looking for 2 specific links that I've forgotten.

One is a website that has a TON of photographs by a ton of different people, and you can browse by specific lens, or phototog, or whatever. I used it extensively when I was researching my camera purchase to examine shots produced by various lenses, but now I've forgotten what the name of it is! Please help!

Also, fstopjojo, can you post a link to your site where you usually test lenses? I really like it, but I haven't yet put it in my favorites and I really need to. =)

Thanks all.

Can't really answer that as I have the F4L and you are asking about the f/2.8.

Pbase I believe. I have had both the f4 and the f2.8 and don't remember much diff of bokeh - both great. Neither (since they are zooms) are going to take a 2x well.

The bokeh of the f/4 is wonderful. Really. Creamy and smooth with vivid colors.
I don't have the f/2.8 so I cannot compare.

Pbase is helpful, yes, but I'm thinking of a different site. It had a streamlined interface and smaller fonts.

I don't have the 2.8 so I cannot tell you how it compares with the the f/4. But if you run a search here you'll probably find lots of comparisons on the f/2.8 (IS or non IS) vs f/4.
I'll tell you it is not easy to use indoors, unless you have a lot of light.

This one serves to see the distance it covers. I was in the midle of the field.
