Taken hand-held at 1/60th second, f2.8, full frame and straight from the camera. Check out the detail on the eye in the original size. No addition post-shutter sharpening, I promise. Noise levels are what one can expect from the 40D at ISO 200. Gotta love the ultra-thin DOF that the 300/2.8 gives. I think I am getting addicted to it.
