I sold my Sigma 70-200 f2.8 lens last week. I have no telephoto lens to use and was really contemplating on what lens to get. Canon 70-200 f2.8 L or 70-200 f2.8 L IS? With all that research and sleepless nights I bought a new one last Monday, the Canon EF 70-200 f2.8 L IS version. I closed my eyes signed the check and bought the lens…Whoa! Goodbye good earned moolah!
Well, the Sigma served me well! Very well! It is true that its not the equipment nor the technology but after using this bazooka lens, I kinda disagree. This lens is a remarkable one, it is sharp at f2.8 wide end (70mm) and especially on the long end (200mm). The Image Stabilizer really helps and it will give you sharper images. The output photos are more punchier because of the better contrast from its glass. And yo-yeah its Bokehlicious among the Canon 70-200 family. Almost No CA (Chromatic Aberration). These are the image characteristics that I’ve been longing from my Sigma since 2003.
Watch out for my Miss Earth 2008 press presentation pics soon. Images are from the lovely 70-200 2.8 IS without PP only cropping on some.
Thanks to Jan Tan of JT Photo World for reserving me the last one.
Just finished shooting 4 locations today all architectural shots.. wheww we were given a good weather until the rain poured in the afternoon at the last location. We will manipulate the clouds for that one. Sorry can’t show you the photos, lets just say it is 3 of the known mall within the metro and one old condo-office in Makati. 😉
We almost had a problem with one of the location since we dont have permit, I rarely seldomly do this but we have no choice.. I always demand my clients to secure a permit for smooth workflow of photo shooting. I can’t concentrate when you know that someone will grab you and say “Sir bawal po yan”.
