It finally arrived today! My new Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lense. I’ve been really looking forward to this lens as I, usually, shoot from greater distance and in motion. So, a telephoto lens with an image stabilizer was always what I wanted. Especially after trying out Milan Vasek’s Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG MACRO HSM, for which I thank him again ;) , I felt this kind of a lens would be a must have for the kid of photos I take. So, after a lot of comparisons, charts, reviews, etc… I finally ordered this one and today I, very briefly though, tested it outside. It was getting late, around 7pm., so this was a good time to test out its speed. Well, I’m not a photographer, I just like my Canon EOS 400D that I bought mainly for shooting references, textures and “family photos”, if you know what I mean :D but I felt in love with it and I try to keep improving my skills, so this lens, really, is an extreme luxury for me, but that’s the way I am :) Anyways, here are some photos I took with this lens on and slightly post-processed them in Lightroom and Photoshop, mainly adjusting exposure and colors (I always shoot in RAW, by the way).

Take these pictures more as tests than anything else, I know they’re not that good from a photographer’s point of view, but still, I’m quite happy with them. Of course, I’ll take the lens for a good spin on the weekend to come, no matter what weather awaits :D and then post some more pictures.
