Fast lens.... You can have a lot of fun with it. Your 100-400 can't do the action shots this lens will do. Enjoy.
Hehe, thanks! Not much of a sports shooter but faster lens never hurts!

Thanks man, i'm going to the zoo (again!!) this weekend to test this legendary lens. I seriously need to invest in a season pass.

Do you really need the 2.8? I've owned almost all the 70-200s (well 3 of the 5 canon ones) and i would rather spend the money on a 70-200 f/4L IS since it's alot better optically when compared to the non-is 2.8

Nope, the grain is still there. Eek just (correctly) brings up the point that this is much less grain than other cameras would have. At that ISO, my images would start to look like I took pictures from underneath a sandbox.
Thanks for the explanation man!

but yeah, that lens is the best zoom canon knows how to make. too bad it's such a heavy lady for a couple hours. i sold it a year ago to get a 200 f/2
Vouch best zoom made. But erm.. are you referring to the Mark I of the 70-200/2.8 IS? The Mark II wasn't even around an year ago.. And the 200/2 IS weights almost twice as much as the the 70-200/2.8 IS.
