But I dont know if I wanna dump that much money into a lense. (nikon btw)
I came in here expecting to talk about canon
eh, i cant say anything bad about canon, ive never used the brand.
if you need that range and you cant afford to miss a shot by all means..its one seriously sweet piece of work.
a) it's heavy as fuck after holding it for over an hour
b) the pictures that it produces are unreal. honestly.
c) it's expensive.
basically if you want to sacrifice your $$ and arms for insane image quality, a lens with a amazing focal length useful for sports, portraits...go for it. you will regret buying it until you take your first picture, then you will forget.
edit: the only lenses i really use anymore is my 17-35 f/2.8 and the 70-200 f/2.8
maybe the 50 some times..but never really use my 85 or 12-24 anymoh.
I played with the Nikon version of that. Very nice glass. I too and debating very heavily on the 70-200 2.8 L IS
anyone got some untouched sample pix?
I'm ordering one as soon as B&H gets them in stock
I bought one back when I got my d200, I use it more than any of my other two lenses (18-55/50 1.8). The weight is no issue for me, I can hold it up for 2-3 hours during various events/games. The glass is amazing, the picture quality is amazing, it's just an amazing lens by nikon. I spent the list 1700 on it and it's worth every penny.
btw, I'll see if I can get a sample pic up on the quality. You looking for 100% or just standard resizing?
a resized and a 100% crop is fine.
Untouched in photoshop other than a crop. This is straight from the camera.
Best lens...ever. You will not regret this lens.
56k beware ;O
How much does one of these go for nowadays?
no white lens, no care.
So where's the best place to buy one, when in stock?
^ you call that sharp ? Id trash that shot . I hate Nikon /being an asshole
Yah, b/c Canon is just the most awesomest thing everrrr! Damn Canon sackriders.
Unedited, but compressed by flickr.
whats the point of that
edit: i thought that said a resized 100% crop... need more drugs, brb.
not sure how much retouching there is on these, but a family friend took them with the 70-200vr and a d2x
ill have to order one....where is the best place to do so?
