Ok we have a 70-200 f/4 best photo thread and we have a mixed 70-200 with extender best photo thread.

Since I am considering to get the 70-200 f/2.8 NON-IS I would like to see lots of photos shot with this lens so post You best photo with this lens.

Oh btw. please do not suggest a search on pbase. I know about that but that function is lousy.

Ok Tommy......since no has answered the call, I'll give you a couple. I moved up to this optic from the 70-200F4 and I found it a lot more useful!! Last month I traded it for a 200f2.8 prime, and while the prime was very very good, I think as far as IQ, I found little distinction between the two. The trade didn't work out (guy was uncomfortable with the cosmetics of my well-used 70-200F2.8!) so we traded back again!! I think I''ll keep it since it seems to be a tough sell in it's condition (cosmetically!!). Anyhow, it is a great optic, sharp, great contrast and colour, and it is sharp wide-open!! Here are a couple of shots of Julia taken recently.........all wide-open at f2.8 and at the long end (200mm). I tend to use it at the long end 90% of the time. You can't really go wrong with this lens or any of Canon's offerings in this focal length. They are all good!!

This is my favorite lens next to my 600 f4. I contemplated getting the IS version but could not justify the extra 500.00 to 600.00 dollars. So far, I haven't regretted that decision.

Here's one more for your evaluation. Hope this helps. Some great examples already posted by another photographer.

Primarily, I shoot concerts.

"Best"? I dunno'; that's subjective, really. But this is one of my favorites:

It's Tim Flannery (former San Diego player and coach) and the California Center For The Arts in Escondido. CA. The lighting was great, and the f/2.8 non-IS saw a lot of work that night!

Schmoelzel, yours are absolutely beautiful, especially the last portrait. I took mine with a 5 D. I love this camera but have noticed increased noise since downloading firmware version 1.05. I hope Canon addresses this issue with a new firmware update soon.

I'm not used to the 100 KB image file size for this forum. I'm looking forward to using this lens in the studio with my 5 D when my house is finally completed.

Ok I went and bought this lens today. :D

Hopefully I will get to the zoo tomorrow and test it good. A few quick testshots looks good.
