Low light video samples 300mm F2.8 lens on the Canon 7D

After shooting at the skyscraper festival mostly in daylight with the Canon 5D Mark III and the 300mm F/2.8L IS II USM I thought it would be time to try the performance at night.

I put the lens on the Canon 7D and went out to capture some stuff, unfortunately there was not much going on. I did a few test shots mostly at ISO 640 and always at F/2.8.

Putting this telephoto lens on a crop-sensor camera makes it even more powerful. It becomes a focal length of ca. 480mm (in full frame)! You can watch some of the shots below.
