hey, I thought there'd be some more startling discoveries about L by now

LOL Once I pass CDS is post count, I'm going to campaign for queen of POTN :lol::lol:

You aren't queen of POTN already?

Could've fooled me...

Anyone who disagrees, raise their hand...

Thought so.


Your wish is my command, my queen. :)

I have plans in mind for a new test lens :D :D :D It will deal with G&N shooting. Well, I am missing time these days. For sure if the L take the lead I'll do it :D

Okay. here we go.
This was the test: very simple.

Lenses: I got the chance to test a pre-series sample of a 70-200 2.8 IS L provided by Canon Bangkok for comparison with my own 70-200 2.8 IS L.
Testing conditions: The test was done during a G&N session of my Thai friend Somchai Thothong, a local famous photographer shooting for the local issue of Playboy. We worked very hard. 4 hours non stop. Astonishing girls, and very professional. A lot of fun, as well.
Results: Of course, I cannot post the images here in this forum. I will be considering the G&N forum for that. But I think images of the lens right after the session are demonstrative enough:

its a matter of fact that the L holds the distance much better.

Conclusions: you pros: no doubt you want the L
you newbies, amateurs and dummies: why not considering the L as well :confused: (you deserve it)

I have avoided visiting Bangkok because, quite frankly, I assume that I would spend my time being wild and crazy rather than doing productive things like taking pictures of useful and edifying things.

I could give a frame of reference from a recent trip to Las Vegas for a Photoshop Users convention -- I have the impression that I spent more time enjoying the pleasures of Vegas than I did absorbing the wonders of Adobe products, but "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas", so I won't elaborate.

However, you have provided some real evidence that there might be a compelling reason to visit Bangkok: a Playboy shoot! I have to rethink my thinking!

And, I have an L lens, rather than an L lens, so I don't think I would suffer from the lens dysfunction that you illustrate above!

Anyway, constructive suggestions are welcome, but especially contributions to my Bangkok fund are welcome, or maybe setting up a Playboy shoot out here in the Pacific Northwest!

Because it apparently gives your shots an artistic flair that the L simply doesn't? :D

Well, you see, that's the problem with Pixel Peeping. You get too wrapped up in what the individual pixels look like and miss that the photo as a whole is a wretched mess!

GO BIG L
