    Just got my Canon EF 70-200mm F/4 L USM lens. I kinda regret not getting the IS lens but I can't afford it so I'll cope with what I've got. Have been testing the lens for a couple of days now. Haven't quite gotten the hang off it yet. There are some significant changes from my 18-55 lens. Critique would be much appreciated as I'm learning to use this lens.

    Love #4; great lighting, focus and expression on the guys face. Nice backdrop too.

    None of the others really do it for me though, sorry. They just seem a bit snapshotty and uninspiring.

    Yeah I see what your talking about. #4 is also my favorite. I get these lens flares all the time when taking night shoots. Is there any filter or something to the lens that may take it away? I got a standard UV filter, but that don't help.
