    they really are magical lenses.
    I can point an L lens randomly and take a good shot.
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    Totally agree with you. The IQ from the 70-200f4ISL really blown me away. Really impressed with the photos taken by that lens. Now in my mind keep thinking about what is the next L lens I should get even though I keep shouting "Bo Lui" liao. Hahahhaa

    The L only stands for the Red Lubber Band you see on the lens... nothing more.
