Was disappointed and not what I was expecting from a Canon product.

Summary: Did not take a sharp picture and auto focus locked up at least once. Tried lens for 2 weeks and didn't improve with use. I currently use a Canon EF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS II USM which is a faster lens, but wanted one that was more versatile and had more power.
Excerpt: I bought this lens few years ago, well is not to bad.Is a bit soft but at that range is to be expected.In low light is very slow, and the focus is hunting forever. However for general work I use it very often.The biggest complain is the "felt" ring used like a "ferodo" what is getting tight or loose the lens.At firs I saw falling few pieces of this"felt" like material, I try to open the lens, to clean it I thought is dirt.Well I end up on the table with few hundred tiny...
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable
Cons: Heavy, Lens Creep, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus
Summary: I bought it because where I shoot ( Desert and mountains) I have to be extracareful when I change lens ( dust, sand) are killers. Solutions ? Get only one lens !!! Beautiful machine on the paper. So beautiful that I bought it, but it has a huge problem: the pull and push structure of the zoom makes it a real dust vacuum which makes it useless for outdoor photography. DO the TEST while pushing and pulling bring the lens to the ear and listen you'll hear the air sucking.
Pros: IS very efficient, Sharp, AF fast, can check quality on www.buyphotoarts.com check wildlife Latin america., But Had todo huge post prod to clean the shots.
Cons: Its bone structure Push pull too long, too strong , too powerful like a dyson vacuum cleaner., No dust proofing
Excerpt: I am a professional photographer, a president of the Photograph Society of Los Angeles. I had a lot of canon lenses, this is the most worst one I ever had. The price is supper high, weight is very heavy, picture comes out are not sharp at all. Due to the heavy weight, it also makes you unsteady hands to hold camera. If let me chose again, I will not buy this lens no more.
Summary: Ich war knapp davor dieses Objektiv zu kaufen, da mir der Zoombereich für das Fotografieren auf Reisen ideal zu sein schien. Als ich aber die Testergebnisse auf traumflieger.de angesehen habe, war ich über die Werte etwas erschüttert. Ich hätte erwartet, dass L-Klasse-Objektive von Canon sich vor allem durch Schärfe der Bilder auszeichnen. Stattdessen liegen die Werte für die Auflösung in den Tabellen von traumflieger.de fast durchgängig unter 2000 Linien.
