Excerpt: This is my first "L" lens and I am now a believer that the additional cost is worth it. Don't buy into the sales pitches or reviews telling you that other glass "for half the price" is "L" quality - it's not. I bought them and have never been truly impressed.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I was planning to buy a 70-200 2.8, and by chance I also tried this one. After two seconds I was completely in love with it. It's one of the best Canon lenses and it's also very cheap compared to the 70-200 2.8. However it has nothing to envy to her more famous sister.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this lens at the skating rink and other sporting events. It takes a little getting used too because I hand hold it. I found that by bumping up the ISO and the shutter speed it takes crisp pictures. Adding a flash helps.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: I love this lens! It's fairly light weight, unobtrusive and fun to work with. As you'd expect with a prime, the image is sharp and the lens focuses very quickly. Because it's so unobtrusive I found it was easy to carry into a concert and none of those sitting near me were disturbed when I took a few...
Summary: I am a lens snob. There, I said it. I began to shun zooms and own and carry only primes, sometimes five at a time. But I just couldn't get rid of my 70-200 f4 IS USM; I needed that reach. Well, I borrowed this lens for an afternoon and immediately fell in love.
