New package today. Hmm.... wonder what it could be? Oh my, L glass. Isn't she a thing of beauty? A lens pouch and hood too? Oh how nice of you to throw in Canon! Ok, I just got my fist L-series lens today. All I have to say is WOW. The sharpness, contrast, and color saturation are unparalleled in terms of my lens collection. The out of focus areas are so beautifully blurred with the 8-blade rounded aperture system. It is amazing. I went outside for a short time to snap a few pics, most were boring pics just to see what the lens could do and from what distances. Good thing I got it today though. Cause I nabbed this pic from across the parking lot without the subjects even knowing I existed. This lens is SHARP! 100% crop. Just thought I'd share.
