What Does A Nikon Shooter Think Of The New Canon L Series Lens?

As a professional photographer I am often asked “what camera should I buy?” My response is always “whatever gets you the results.” It might be an elusive response, and I certainly don’t mean to sit on the fence with it…but it’s really true.

And I have fantastic Nikon gear and was sold on Nikon….until recently….I used the latest Canon 70-200mm f 2.8 IS L series lens on the weekend. I was asked to shoot a wedding and used this lens to do so. And my goodness….the quality!

Incredibly sharp, smooth, easy to use.

One thing I noticed the most about this lens was that it did everything I wanted. I didn’t have to mess around with focusing, or shifting my position to get a better depth of field. it just did it for me. And boy, was I impressed!

I won’t show you the wedding shots just yet because my clients haven’t gone through the images and it’s fair they see them before you do- but I can show you the shots of the second shoot I did.

Here are a few examples…..
