Great shots of the herons and particularly the little girl. I love her facial expression :). If that's your daughter you should mount & hang the print.

I've used the 70-200/2.8 L IS for about 6 years and have been very pleased with its performance. My copy is a little soft wide open, but I don't hesitate to shoot at f/2.8 if needed. I sometimes use a 1.4 TC and shoot low light wide open without regrets.

I've seen enough comparisons with the new f/4 L IS to believe it is a little sharper. I shoot with a 1.6 crop body so I don't see any issues if they exist with CA, vignetting, etc.

I think all too often some base absolute IQ on what is seen on a monitor at the pixel level, and only want "the best". That's OK for some, but it doesn't need to work for everyone. 10 x 12 prints from the f/2.8 L IS are gorgeous, with a high wow factor.
