Klaus tested both but says the results are not directly comparable across platforms but you draw your own conclusion.

they don't look like they are shooting 70-200s, but yeah, that's funny.

Here's the latest review from dpreview http://www.dpreview.co​m ...70-200_2p8_is_usm_ii_c16/external link

"Overall, then, the EF 70-200mm F2.8 L IS II USM gains about as close as it gets to an unqualified recommendation, given the price. Its combination of exceptional optics and quirk-free design even manages to surpass Nikon's equivalent that we tested recently, stealing the crown of 'Best in Class' by a whisker. It's a significant improvement over what was already an accomplished lens, capable of consistently delivering results that will satisfy the most demanding of users, and you can't ask for much more than that."

Canon should use that pic in their advertisement... with the Nikon logo and all...

"Nikon? Really?"

THAT would be hilarious...
