Summary: Out of this world performance. Somewhat heavy so bring a tripod if you plan to shoot for more than an hour or two. Not all situations call for a 200mm prime but when it does the performance, bokeh and image quality sets you apart from almost anything.
Summary: Perfect lens for studio. Sets you in the wow factor to your clients. Images are great. Camera should be on tripod for best results. Negative...be-careful with this lens Canon will not service it anymore. It has leaded crystal glass. There are companies that will service it though.
Summary: I give this lense to my wife for her bitrthday, she is a professional photographer she is 100% happy. The only crazy thing is the price! I told her this birthday gift covers the next 10 years. Lol.... LiliaAlvaradophotography

Summary: After much research I decided to buy this lens for our wedding photography business and I have not been dissapointed. We are a two photographer team and this lens really compliments our other lenses. The images are just awesome and the bukah is to die for.
Excerpt: This lens is fantastic, and will help a skilled portrait photographer produce excellent images. Compared to my other L series portrait lenses (which are also amazing) this lens is superior in many ways. For instance, it seems even sharper and quicker to focus than my 135mm f/2 L.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Sexy As F, Twice As Fast As F28
Cons: Attention Grabbing, Expensive, Heavy, Not An Indoor Lens Duh
Excerpt: Sharp, Sharp, Sharp. So sharp you won't have to post-sharpen your image, especially a portrait subject.I received my lens last week and photographed my 4 year niece a few days later at the park with lens attached to a Canon 5D Mark II.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Incredible sharpness, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: My previous 200mm f2 was the Nikon version vri. Im happy with the Canon version as its technically 400 grams lighter which is a lot when you have to lug it around all day. Performance is around the same. Feet on the canon is better.
Summary: In this lens you can basically buy youself into the ranks of the great candid portrait photographers, when combining this with the 5D3, you can automatically take terrific photos of young people, but the old folks may not like the photos because they are too revealing.
