I would like to share these with you all.....

The shots were taken yesterday at the British Field Target Championships in the UK. Later on it absolutely poured with rain - the camera and lens got soaked. I'm glad the weather sealing did its job!!!

I am impressed with the ultimate sharpness of the originals and the wonderful out of focus backgrounds with the super thin depth of field.

All shots were taken 'wide open' with the lens and camera on a manfrotto monopod. Canon 300mm f2.8L IS mounted on a 1ds mkII.

Thanks for looking............

Nicely taken shots. You must have been pleased with their quality wide open at f/2.8 as they were. Were they all shot specifically at this aperture to test the lens as the shutter speed gets as high as 1/3200"?

Hi John

I wanted to test the lens at 2.8 - thats why you spend the extra cash after all :) . Obviously shooting wide open helps to keep the shutter speeds high as a knock on effect. I believe you cannot have a high enough speed to keep things sharp when the subject dictates it.
