Well, as you (who follow my each and every breathtaking word) might remember, I purchased a new lens when I was at my Photography Convention.
The new version of the professional grade 70-200 lens...
As soon as it arrived I was on the phone to my pal Wendy asking her to go on a shooting expedition with me.
So we decided on Sea World since we both have passes and it's SO beautiful~!
One of the most desirable things about my new lens is its superb stabilization and super crisp focus.
That photo of the purple flowers was captured from 10 feet away.
See the butterfly? Well here's that same photo cropped down to just the butterfly:
Ooh...that was fun, let's try another!
Original from 10 feet away:
Okay, I'm getting carried away here, but...
(Yes, Sea World has a few non-ocean dwellers around...) ;-)
And how is it as a portrait lens you wonder? (Right? You wondered that didn't you?)
Improving upon one of the most celebrated lenses in the Canon EF line is no easy feat, but Canon has done just that. The all-new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM increases the speed, performance and optical quality of the EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM while maintaining all of the characteristics that have made it a legend for professionals and advanced amateurs alike. The EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM features one fluorite and five UD elements for increased optical quality and reduced chromatic aberration. It has a minimum focusing distance of 1.2m/3.9 ft. at all zoom settings, which is useful for photographers in smaller spaces trying to get closer to a subject. It features a next-generation Optical Image Stabilizer, providing up to 4 stops of correction at all focal lengths. And as with all L-series lenses, the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM is dust- and moisture-resistant and designed for use in the challenging environments typical of rigorous professional use. Canon USA
