Yes, it’s the 3rd birthday of my beloved 70-200 2.8 IS II and during these 3 years, it has performed absolutely magnificently. I’ve been bowled over by the quality of images that it produces time and again. Yes, it’s a heavy, big white beast and takes time to master, but THIS lens has been my bread & butter lens for more than a couple of years now, and I just cannot imagine my life without the mighty 70-200. I have put this lens through usage which most users wouldn’t really want to; I have used this in absolute heavy downpour, snowfall, moisture, dirt and what not, and this lens just shines every time. I am proud that I have the 70-200 with me.
I have, what you’d put it a nice collection of primes and zooms, but the 70-200 is called upon when I really need to get the shot! It’s fast, has a superb AF, and that 4-stop IS is a boom in low-light conditions. The 70-200 2.8 IS II has always been behind the shots, hence, I thought it’s time I shoot the beauty on it’s birthday.:-) Here are a few photographs shot, of the beautiful and gorgeous Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS II USM Lens. Happy Birthday!
- The beautiful Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS II USM Lens
- That red ring, those big black rings and that sure weight of the lens is something that I have fallen in absolute love with, from the 1st day!
- The thick and heavy lens barrel provides for an amazing grip, and is ergonomically just perfect.
