R3 + RF70-200mm f2.8 L + frisky dog
5

I bought a new RF70-200 f2.8 at the recent Photography Show in the UK where good deals were available. A friend picked it up for me and delivered it yesterday am.

In the afternoon I was able to test it in our back garden, when another friend came to visit with her young poodle who is very energetic!

I used an R3 with subject and eye detect ON, Flexible Zone AF 3 customised in size, shutter speeds around 1/2000 and ISO around 800 - 1250, f2.8 to f3.5. The drive was 30fps with continuous burst set to 2.

I was very pleased with the results - the lens is significantly lighter than my old EF 70-200 f2.8L MKII IS and the AF was excellent.

I'll set up another session in a location with a better background and with his harness removed as in image 3!

Comments and questions welcomed.

John
