Do the users of this lens find it hard to create separation between subject and background? I'm just saying it... On a general basis... Do you see much pop in your pictures?

I'm just basically wondering if f2.8 is thin/fast enough for me. I've had the mark I in the past, and now have been wondering if I should just buy the 50L and save a grand for the 200 f2L. Hmmm. The 2.8 is a staple lens.

On full frame...yes. Plenty of separation. I actually like shooting at f/2.8 on full frame...enough DOF for portraits most of the time, but still good background separation. It's why I went to the 100L as my portrait lens (among other reasons).

For instance, here's a shot at 95mm and f/2.8...not exactly a recipe for huge amounts of bokeh, but the separation is really nice;

And, of course, at 200mm and f/2.8, subject separation is quite easy:

The first shot proves to be well worth the cost of the lens...Even if it's not a bunch of bokeh.

Using this lens at 800-1000 ISO and the 1Ds MK III. This lens rocks!

This is a great shot. Is the R22 pilot flying on the left side?? That seems odd.

Heres a 400mm crop.. This lens is a joke man. And I mean that in the most positive sense.I am astonished.

That really is impressive for a 400mm crop. Amazing.

Crop..

Thanks! I'm not familiar with these helicopters but it looked like the pilot was on the left to me.

I agree with you, this lens is sick! Your 400mm crop nicely demonstrates this!

And finally one for the bokeh-lovers:

Is this colour produced by the lens or body or pp? contrast is real nice. and the colours are vivid too. custom picture style?

The SOOC colors are phenom. You have the choice to pp them or not but, I prefer to PP. :)

It should do well on a 7D. The 7D is a beast when it comes to speed. I don't see why not. :)

Yeah the colors are just amazing...I cant get such color SOOC with my other L. Thats why I'm curious about phonetic pp workflow. A very poisonous thread for my 24L...lol
