I rented a 70-200mm f/2.8L this weekend, but unfortunatly it's not giving me very sharp pictures. Either the focusing calibration is off, or the lens is seriously in trouble. I went to shoot hot air balloons yesterday morning, and I was getting significantly sharper pictures with my cheap 75-300mm. Oh well, got some good shots anyway.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. The current plan is to head up to Sedona this afternoon/evening. Hopefully I'll return with some more good shots.

WOW! Very beautiful colours of the clouds. It's like there was a jet fighter just zoom throught the clouds in 'S' path.

Where did you rent the lens and how much? It's good idea to have this kind of service especially for me that can't affort big price tag stuffs.
