Moose at f/2.8

I bought my self a new Canon 70-200 f/2.8L lens this week, and decided to test it out on a walk with Moose this afternoon. I was very impressed with the lens, particularly because the lighting was awful as the sky was completely overcast and we were in the woods across the street from my house.

  1. Wow Pat, very impressive. The background is very nice, and I like how it makes the light look. The highlights on the whitest parts of Moose’s fur look very nice. I need to borrow your camera with this lens. :)

  2. Igor, stay away from my camera/lens!

    I was expecting the lens to perform very well, but just in the short walk in the woods, it exceeded my expectations. The focus was incredibly fast and accurate (I like the focus around his feet in this shot, all the ground is blurred except for around his feet, neat effect), which was important because moose was not being an easy subject to shoot!
