Next year there will a be an important world dog show in Paris, so I went there yesterday for the national one, just to make some real life test and try to figure what should be my best gear for this event.
Actually I am a prime fanatic and I sold all my zooms, because I felt there are basically too slow to be used for action.
But 70-200L2.8II seems to be so loved by everybody, that I wanted to figure wether with my 300L2.8nonIS at 2.8 I could do something. But definitely it's to slow, I couldn't get any pictures under ISO 3200 and iso 4000 was just enough to get sharp running dogs.

So results are a bit insufficient to take that lens to a rather dark indoor Dog Show... This make really make me reconsider to try a 70-200L2.8II .. I think it's definitely to slow if I want to freeze action at 1/800 ..
