Snapshot with Canon 16-35 2.8L

I took "my" new kit (Canon 1D mkII and Canon 16-35 f2.8L) with me to the local bar, where I met Blaž for a cup of coffee. I had to check the sharpness wide open and at f3.2, so I wouldn't mess up any shots tomorrow in Venice. As I suspected, it's pretty soft wide open, so I'll use it in the f3.5-f5.6 range most of the time. For min DOF shots, I'll take my 85 1.8 with me, which is razor sharp even when it's wide open.

Out of 4-5 shots, this one came out best. Lighting was interesting, so I boosted up contrast (yeah, the skin is intentionally overexposed:).
