Yeah, I know Rog, I hear you. I posted that from my mobile (cell) phone and having sausage fingers it would have taken me an age to type a full review.This is not really a review now, is it?
I think you could add a few things like "why is it wow?" How about what makes it wow?
Thanks Rog, it seems to live up to it's reputation and some.Well written, JAH. It's no wonder you're in love with the lens.
Makes a change for meFantastic lens. Had 2 at one point (don’t ask) but ended up selling both. Not because it was not a fantastic lens, just because I was lugging it around for ages but not using it. Once I had the 100-400II I just stopped using the 70-200. I do miss it, it was magnificent. Everything Jah says is spot on.
That's the one I have. Return to post #1 - Wow!!
Brilliant lens, isn't it?! Must admit I've not tried the stabilising tests - impressive. What I like best is the results at 200mm with a minimal DoF totally isolating the subject - not yet learned the distances involved 100% accurately but when it works it's wonderful.
For those who feel this is out of their budget, the f/4 70-200mm is a really good buy too. In low light the f/2.8 blows the f/4 out of the water but when light is pretty good the f/4 is great value for money and both lenses in good light are indistinguishable at around f/8.
If the budget can stretch, get this f/2.8 IS II - I know it depends on what one photographs but for me it provides around 90% of my photographs.
