Amateur/Hobbyists - Beware

Macmartimus, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Unfortunately, I did not have as good an experience with this lens as I had hoped. It's not that the lens is bad; by all accounts, it is a magnificently built, high-quality component to a photographer's arsenal - just not mine. My amateur hobbyist status probably had a lot to do with my experience, but I just couldn't love this lens with total commitment. I would say the lens is better suited to photographers who shoot with a tripod or those who have a rock steady hand.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy

  • Excerpt: I admit that this lens was cleary sharp and fast focus. Excellent lens. But one thing is there is no IS, and 200mm bit shaky if u can not hold it right. After 2 days i bought this lens i returned and swap to 70-200mm F/2.8 IS, I know this lens is very heavy and expensive but this lens is the most photographer use and excellent sharp. Should i recommend you 200mm lens ? Its depend what you using at, coz no IS.

Leider deutlicher Frontfokus, sonst super

Andreas Gryphius "Tom", Amazon

  • Summary: Das Kitobjektiv der 700D funktionerte gut und schnell, auch das Fokussieren (AF im Sucher) kein Problem. Ganz anders das ebenfalls gekaufte 200mm 2.8 L II USM. Das 200mm Objektiv hatte an meiner Kamera einen mehr als deutlichen Frontfokus, d.h. dass der Autofokus im Sucherbild zwar scharf stellte, aber das aufgenommene Bild dann unscharf war. Bei Blende 2.8 fällt das besonders auf, da die Schärfeebene (besser: Depth of Field) nur sehr klein ist (ca.
