17-40mm f/4L | 24-105mm f/4L IS | 24-70mm f/2.8L | 70-200mm f/2.8L IS | 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS | 85mm f/1.8 | 135mm f/2L | 200mm f/2.8L | 18-125mm f/3.5-5.6 (Sigma)

200mm f/2.8L

This lens is just as sharp as the 70-200 f/2.8 IS at 200mm. The colors and contrast are just as nice. Without IS, it is mostly suitable for the outdoor use and for that, it does very well.

I got this lens as a light weight alternative to the 70-200 f/2.8 IS. It did extremely well in the 2006 Renaissance Festival shoot. I was going to bring this lens to Italy as my light weight closeup lens but changed my mind after I learned the no carry on policy during the time of my travel. Because of that, there aren't many photos taken with this at this point. I hope to change that as the time goes on.
