I am just getting the hang of Canon Digital Forums as this is my first post!
I recently purchased a Canon 70-200mm F2.8L IS II USM and have to say I am not overly impressed with it. Before this lens, I had the Canon 70-200mm F4L. When shooting at F2.8, I remember before I purchased this lens, everyone was saying how amazing and sharp it is! However, when I shoot at F2.8 on my Canon 7D, the images are not sharp at all!
I have removed the filter on it, etc, and it makes no difference in the image quality. I have tried Micro adjusting, and it makes it sharper, just not as sharp as I want it!
Ive seen so many super sharp photos at F2.8 @ the 70-200 range, but I am not…
Furthermore, I find that shooting with the Image Stabiliser off makes the images sharper. The only time where the IS actually does help is when I am filming on my Canon 7D. I try shooting at night time at like 1/60, but the images have movement in them, even though my hand is incredibly still!
I also have the Canon 17-40mm F4L and the Canon 50mm F1.4, and these lenses are super sharp, and have great focus!
If anyone could please let me know what I should do, etc, that would be really appreciated!
I have no official Canon Store near me however, but I do have Camera shops. I bought this locally, so it is not a grey import.
Thank you so much guys, I really appreciate it
