    Default Bitten by the "L" bug...

    Went to shoot an event for a charity organization on Saturday. Met up with a friend who just came back from a shopping trip in HK... He let me test his new 70-200mm f2.8 L lens... Now I am itch, itch, itch... Worst of all, I am using a Nikon now!!!

    Just me...

    If you want, you can rent a canon body and that lens to test.

    have u tried the new 70-200 VRII yet? no point switching camp if the VRII is as good. coming from the Canon camp, IMHO, the 70-200 F4 is sharper than the 2.8 from F4 onwards.

    Not thinking of switching camp... That monster size, white colour lens cost SG$2K++ not counting airfare to HK... Anyway, I am too "salted olive" to just switch camp!

    But the speed of the lens is just amazing compared with the ones I have. Just a pleasure to play with.
    Just me...

    Borrow his lens, go overseas, then say you lost it. Tell him what a good friend he is and you can't afford to pay him back.

    And lose a good friend?
    Hmmm.... I'll wait for him to get a 1DmkII and a few other L lens before borrowing the set...
