    I received this lens yeaterday. By 'eck lad. Worra cracker.

    I have no empirical evidence for what I am about to say just a feeling after shooting with it all day.
    Is there any reason why on my 7D body I should find more blown highlights with this lens. I might be wrong about this but it's just a feeling I get from chimping every shot, that more highlights seem to be blown than on my 24 - 105 or the 400 f5.6 which are the other 2 which I use most often.

    Any observations would be gratefully received

    But it is a gorgeous piece of glass.

    Might just be the light itself being odd with you - but different lenses will have slightly different light capturing abilities - even when rated the same (I once compared a 300mm f2.8 to a 70-200mm f2.8 and the 300mm was much brighter in the viewfinder). It should be taken into account by the camera, but if its still giving you trouble a little -1/3EC and you're good to go.

    Also try putting a 2*TC on the lens - becomes a great close up lens then for flowers and the like (and its pretty good long distance too)

    It's a '2.8' Pete. It's a brighter lens by design. Just give more consideration to the EV's...

    Enjoy!

    Thanks overread. I'm not really worried, just curious. I spent an hour this afternoon at a small civil war re-enactment display at Lancaster castle. I'm just looking at the pics now and I'm absolutely stunned by the sharpness and the colour. I doubt I shall have to do anything worth speaking of in PS. Just beautiful.
