Photography forums usually tout an 85mm prime lens or a 100mm prime lens as "the" portrait lens to swear by, but the 70-200 f2.8 L with the extender 2x ii gives me amazing sharpness and fantastic Bokeh even in cloudy situations..
The little one posed for me a few minutes ago (originally brought the camera out to catch the backyard squirrel jumping off the trees but it proved too difficult for a hand held shot and that brought out the model) and junior joined in briefly for a shot..
This lens is so cool that I am having issues deleting shots off the hard drive to save photos! Want to keep every shot.
Tomorrow evening.. Hornets! Found a nest near the front yard and two big hornets. Will see how they pose..
