OK OK, here's the test shot. Since I'd better the first real OWNER to put one here.

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

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!!.... 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.
