Well, had this lens for a couple of weeks, finally used it in anger last night on a shoot :)

Friend got a rescue dog, so took it over to photograph the hound :)

have to say i'm very happy with this lens, it's quick to focus and has a great finish to it :)

Is that a Lhasa Apso? We are dog-sitting for family, and one of them looks kind of like that. I'd post a pic, but I don't have lens for this thread.

No she is a Havanase. They're related to the Bichon family whereas the Lhasa is an oriental dog and related to the Shih Tzu, Pekingese, and Pug.

How is everyone liking this lens?
I shoot weddings with an 80D & 70D
I am thinking of grabbing it to pair with my 18-35 1.8 ART.
I have the Sigma 70-200 2.8 but I can't use it much at weddings bc it is too long on crop. 50-100 would be perfect!

Maybe they will make a FF lens to match it like the 18-3 1.8 ART (crop) and the 24-35 f2 ART(FF).
They would prly do something like a 70-100 or 70-85 f2 for the FF version

It's called the 2.8 70-200 :D This lens was built for crop frame for a reason: It fills a void neither Canon nor Nikon were providing for crop sensor cameras. It is roughly the equivalent of the 2.8 70-200 on a FF so basically you guys already have it :D

That's what I was thinking but they could make an art version at f2
