The newest member of the family.
I have had the pleasure of welcoming the newest member to the family, the Canon 70-200 ƒ/2.8 IS II USM.
This is my second L lens, alongside my trusty Canon 17-40 F4L. I've heard incredible things about the Canon 70-200, particularly how tack sharp it is wide open at ƒ/2.8. I've owned it for a couple weeks now and I must say, the focus on the lens is incredibly snappy. It's able to pick up subjects incredibly quickly and maintain focus. Not to mention the image stabilization that gives 4 stops of shake correction.
That's just ridiculous.
I'm particularly looking forward in seeing how well the IS holds up while locked down to a tripod; I've ran into some issues before while using the Sigma 70-200 ƒ/2.8 without OS (optical stabilization). Turns out IS can be a real lifesaver when you're doing something as simple as tracking shots.
More to come with this beautiful piece of glass.
