There's a lot of talk about 70-300L at the moment..30 shots
Jul 21, 2012

I was about to buy a 70-200 L ii in Holland recently and the young man in the shop, who was really knowledgeable (I would know) persuaded me to buy this instead. He told me it was at least as sharp in his experience, had bigger reach, was lighter and cheaper and he felt that it had better IS.
I took his advice.

I can't compare it because I don't have the second lens, but I've found it to be superb. For photographing flying children it scores really well.

Here's a series of shots of one of my granddaughters playing in the garden with my daughter, not her mother. They were moving so fast that I put the camera in multipoint AF, 1Ds3, 5fps, 800 iso and just shot.
The indoor shots were taken handheld with very slow shutter speeds.
Most of the shots were spot on as regards focus.
