Thanks for sharing. Great shot! Really cool with the green car and the yellow leaves in the background. Seems like the 70-200mm lens is another really popular lens. 24-70mm would be a really good focal length for cruising around car shows. Plus 2.8 is a really good aperture for a zoom lens (both your 70-200 and the 24-70)
Thanks for sharing that link too. Interesting video. Pretty extreme location but that's what it takes for great pictures.
The Canon 16-35mm, 24-70mm, and 70-200mm L (professional) lenses are considered the Holy Trinity of Canon zooms. The 24-70mm f/2.8L II is particularly remarkable in that it has better MTF (modulation transfer function) performance than many prime lenses (which are considered the standard for image quality). For third-party, the Sigma ART lenses have earned quite a reputation as well - been thinking of picking up the 35mm/1.4.
I shoot car shows for fun, and I find myself using the 24-70 almost all the time (though forcing myself to use a prime can be fun as well). Half my shots end up being the dogs that people bring (which makes for some of the best pictures you can take at a car show/meet, IMHO).
Drives a Prius (clearly knows nothing about cars).
