Even from this flickr shot, you can see it stands up with the 200 2.8L pretty well. :D

JPEG or RAW?
If RAW, did you set sharpening to zero in whatever converter you are using?

Anyways, I agree, nice and sharp. Wonder how it controls CA.

I always shoot RAW :) I think ACR standard settings sharpening is 25%? ;)

DD photographics got them instock I think, but the thing is it'll cost you a good AU$2949!!:cry:.... I was thinking of selling my 70-200F4IS to get this but at that price I don't think its 3x better than my 70-200F4IS... prolly I'll wait until the price go down a bit....

I think DD photographics lens source not from Canon Australia, maybe from some Asia country..

Right on, thanks Pete. Let the images roll in... I am anxiously waiting for tomorrow - Barry thought my lens would be here today, but FedEx is showing other news - tomorrow.

Yes, for the end product (i.e. real world results) it's silly b/c I know I ALWAYS apply sharpening in post.

However for comparison to another lens, not so silly. I like to see the RAW ability of lenses with no sharpening.
