First frame from a new lens...my son on his bike.

MotoX Ben

This was the first frame with my new 80-200 f/2.8 L zoom.  I remember now why I love this lens so much.  This is my second copy, which I got for a song on eBay.  I sold the original one I had years ago to help finance a triathlon bike project.  I guess it is fitting that I sacrificed one of my sets of carbon fiber race wheels in order to get another of these lenses.  They call this Canon lens the “Magic Drainpipe” and for good reason.  Images are simply sharp, contrasty, and have a certain pop to them that is hard to find even in the current crop of 70-200 f/2.8 L IS lenses.  You’ll be seeing a lot more of this lens in the coming months.
