Shot my friends' cars this weekend. Found a nice stretch of road that we had all to ourselves and went nuts. I wanted to try the new 70-200 f2.8L IS II I just got my hands on, and after this test I have to say that I'm blown away with its abilities and the IQ wide open.

Very nice series!

I'm blown away with its abilities and the IQ wide open.

But it's not so much the lens as it is the light.

I am going to disagree. This lens makes me look like I know what I am doing. :lol: after micro adjusting a little it is tack sharp.


Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

True, but if I put the 100-400L in these same conditions I wouldn't have come up with a comparable result. The confidence in being able to shoot at f2.8 while not needing to worry about the AF missing or general sharpness and CA problems that tend to occur with most lenses wide open really helped me take charge in situations where other lenses I've owned would leave me feeling helpless. I wouldn't have even bothered trying to shoot motion shots in the nice magic hour low light if I had been using the 100-400L. It just can't keep up in anything less than midday light.

Mine seems great right out of the box! Truly impressed.
