    All shots taken with 70-200 2.8 IS II, and most are pretty tightly cropped after the fact. The remaining detail thanks to this new lens is amazing. :D

    God I love drifting...


    Nice shots! You can see a bit of detail loss because of the crop, but whatever, these are awesome!

    Who cleans the rubber off the streets after :lol:

    Yeah, a couple of them are pretty apparent, but for the most part, I can crop them down a LOT more than compared to my old 70-300. I definately miss the little extra reach the 300 had though. Pretty much NONE of the shots here are full. I cropped at least 20% off each side for almost every picture I took. Some cropped down as tight as 1/4 or 1/9 the original size. The event was a blast and I very much enjoy my new lens. :)

    Great timing on 6! Love the cone flying in the air and the wing being destroyed.

    Those cars are nice. I would love to go see a event like that. Most of them have a cool angle with them to.

    The best part is the look on that guy's face in the white; he's like completely unphased by a cone being knocked off by a car speeding passed him scraping the wall.
