Is it true that the f/4 IS is sharper with better color rendition than the 2.8 IS? Does that have to do with the fact the 2.8 IS is like 6 years old?

thanx DJ .....

i have this one framed @ 11 x 14" (i like otters) i took it with the 5d, iso 1250, 200mm, f4...



i like squirrels too i have an 11 x 14" of this one framed too.



here's a link to a trip i made to the SF zoo, which was my first real outing (besides tests) with the lens.

http://www.fototime.com/inv/4E0FC3BF736F478

like i was telling a fellow the other day i also have a 300L f4 IS which is a fine lens. i believe the 70-200L f4 IS nips it in IQ tho and the difference becomes obvious once you add a 1.4 TC.

Ed... AWESOME shots! I looked through that gallery and there's some great stuff in there.

Were these totally hand-held with IS on?

Ed... kudos. Absolutely wonderful shots. So incredibly sharp, too. They give my 100mm macro a run for its money!

Well I have a new 70-200 f/4 IS and NONE of my pics are anywhere near as sharp as those on my 400D (XTi)...WTF!

Maybe I got a very bad copy? Maybe I take crap pics or maybe I need a better camera or maybe all three?
