Lens Review: Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS

I rented a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L II IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens for my trip to Maine. Let me tell you, WHAT a beast this lens is! Attached to my Canon Digital Rebel XTi, with the lens hood, AND my battery grip, the whole setup certainly looked impressive. The lens by itself is 52.6 […]
