Very nice, Ellis. Although I don't own any zooms at the moment, this one could get some attention.

Nice photos, Ellis. I've been shooting the Canon 70-200/4 for a couple of years, and it's one of my favorite lenses. I take the f/2.8 version only when I absolutely need the extra speed, which is not very often these days.

I'm starting to think that the f/4 zooms do 80% or so of my work, and the fast primes do the rest, leaving the f/2.8 zooms heavy, expensive, and not as useful overall.

why do you need to switch VR on @ 1/800 and 92mm on FF ? don't you think that it actually makes thing a little worse ?

I just took delivery of this lens.  I've shot about 100 frames with it and so far, it's a keeper.  Although the actual sample I have is not.  The VR intermittently fails in the long dimension of the frame.  It'll be replaced by my supplier.

It's lighter, sharper, better in backlight (less flare) MUCH easier to use and carry around than its f 2.8 brother and it focuses much closer.  I've had a VR I version of this focal range for a few years and I can count on one hand the number of times I needed the 2.8 part.

Ellis' images perfectly illustrate the potential in this little gem.
