i was just testing out shots in both modes. do you think that could be a cause?

Probably. Try it on mode 1 unless you are panning.

Does anyone know if there's any evidence that the IS degrades the image in any way?

I asked the very same question and a user on the site here was kind enough to test out the performance of the 70-200mm f2.8 IS L and a 2*TC against the 100-400mm L. Both on a 1D (the first test images) and on a 300D (found later on in the thread - afew pages in)
https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=869226

It sold me on upgrading from the V1 to the V2 of this lens and its a fantastic and very noticable upgrade opticaly- especially when you really push it with a 2*TC. I didn't get any comparison shots between the two myself as I had to sell one to get the other. I do have a few (imperfect) test shots with fullsize viewable in this set here:

Oh and a shot: wish the surroundings were a little better ;)

f6.3, ISO 400, 1/200sec at 200mm

Note no editing was done to this shot save for RAW processing, where only white balance and minor brightness/exposure adjustments were made

was doing a little testing on this lens after reading about the "de-centered issue", shot at 200mm, tripod, 1/100 (2sec timer), f2.8, iso100, live view, IS off, evaluative metering; shot in raw and converted straight to jpeg. this picture seems pretty sharp at 100% crop, but when i shot handheld at the the same settings, minus the live view, tripod and self timer and IS switched onto mode 2-the picture isn't as sharp. anybody could tell me what i am doing wrong here? i'm pretty new to photography, so any advice or comments are welcomed. btw, this was with a 5D II. TIA.

IS mode 2 counters blur only in one angle and is really used for panning shots rather than totally static tripod shots. I do seem to recall reading that the V2 and the original 70-200mm had IS that detected tripod stabilty, yet I've never got sharp shots when IS is on - so I always turn it off (unless panning then you use mode 2)

Hi folks,
I am about to purchase this lens ( Ef 70-200 F2.8 IS L II, plus 2x extender) through out my positive reviews about this combination. I am falling in love with it.

I have EOS 500D camera, I know its compatable with this lens. the question, is it going to give me the same razor sharp image quality pictures as the one's posted on this forum? considering most of the pictures taken with advanced EOS 1ii, EOS 5D, EOS 50D and so forth.

Thanks all,

Balamri look two posts up :)
I think two threads got merged and the posts a little jumbled - I replied in the other to your question and the answer (at least from me) is post posts up now :)

I attended "Raleigh Wide Open 2010" today. It's a large festival of food,drink, more drink:) , and music. It was a fun time but, was able to capture one of the bands that played. :)

Yeah, I'm loving this lens more and more. One thing I really like, aside from sharpness, versatility, AF, etc, is the rendering from the lens is just beautiful. A lot of Canon's lenses have a slightly clinical look to them...this lens has sharpness and beauty. Here's another with a 2x TC. This is at 342mm, f/5.6, ISO 1600 and 1/100 sec.

QUOTED IMAGE

That looks superb.:D
