I don't make much of them... You can't tell where the focus was or what the settings were..... Unless I missed something?

Focus was centre AF point on all

For settings look at the info box when you mouseover the image

Alright, I will try it at home.... Here at work the cursor over it only displays the file name.

My MK1 will have to do until I save up for the new version. Here is an MK1 shot handheld at 200mm; f/2.8, 5D; no sharpening.

I am not worried about the sharpness. I'd rather have better color and contrast. My previous 70-200 f/4 L RAW shots required less PP than my current f/2.8 as the RAW shots from the f/4 were fantastic. This will be my deciding factor if upgrading to the MKII.

The 'softness' of this lens wide open at 200mm is another shoddy internet rumour. Especially by the time you get to a print or web crop.

Colour and contrast are different between all of my lenses; Ls or not. If I have to match them, I'll tweak a few dials in LR... In the digital age I don't let colour or contrast go as deciding factors for lenses (unless they can't hold contrast into the sun). I bet the Mark II will have better coatings and probably better contrast for that... but not enough for my $ right now.

I posted this in the lens archive as well, but does anyone have photos or opinions on this lens with a crop camera?

it's easy -just ignore the edges of the frame and you'll have the same thing

check out 100% view (select 'O' for 'original' ) of the images LINK I posted earlier - you can almost read text that is too distant to see with e naked eye!:eek:

For my eye I think new MK II lens really GREAT for sure !! Love it !

Good thing for 200mm f2 L IS USM now just for f2 ~ :P which means only require around ISO800 (no need for ISO1250), I mean the light level I shoot for above images.

What do you think?

For me next week I am going to bring new MK II lens into Melbourne fashion week, then keep my 200mm f2 IS USM home~
