70-200is Ver II is amazing
Apr 26, 2010

Canon loaned me a the new 70-200is ver II this week and I tested it against a 3 month old copy of the older 70-200is and it isn't even close. Color, contrast, focusing, sharpness, everything is much better. So much better in fact that the old lens that used to be my favorite looks darn right bad in comparison. I was amazed.

All the testing I did was at f2.8 so the older lens might get closer once they were stopped down, but I use f2.8 so often having it tack sharp wide open is wonderful. I can post some examples later today if anyone wants.

Needless to say the new one is on order.
