    Cool pics. Yes, the lens is brilliant. I'm always amazed by it.
  3. Okay, you've borrowed it for long enough.
    I kept waiting for the coffee can shots, but enuff's enuff and now it's time to give it back. :biggrin:
    I do have a Nikon to EOS adapter. :wink:

  7. It's interesting how much the sharpness can vary in different copies of the same lens. My 70-200 was just awful from f/2.8 to f/5.6. My 80-200 (two ring) blew it away. It wasn't even close. It was an easy decision to get rid of my 70-200, and keep the 80-200. It's a shame.
