Well I splurged today and went out and power shopped a new lens for my camera. I bought the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM for my Canon 20d. It’s hot. In my opinion it’s one of the 2 best lens that Canon makes, and I have the other one. 🙂
It is huge and intimidating though. Not exactly spontaneous, but damn it takes fine photos. I’m going to be event blogging that Techvibes Massive 2005 event tomorrow and will be sure to break out the new lens lots and upload some shots.
Here’s a review on the lens (73 reviews actually) from FM Reviews.
“Incorporating Canonâ€™s second generation Image Stabilization technology, this telephoto zoom responds in as little at 0.5 seconds, while providing up to three stops of correction for camera shake. Its AF system has been refined for better response time and tracking speed. And even the new 8-blade circular aperture offers a more pleasing out-of-focus image. Constructed to pro standards, this fast zoom is also highly resistant to dust and moisture, too.”
