  • Summary: I got Exactly what I expected from thus lens. It is quite heavey but versatileit keeps you from changing out lenses all the time trying to get your shot . as far as the quality goes its what you expect from the L series lens. Metal body adds weight but in the long run will survive most any mishap.

  • Conclusion: PROs if you only want to bring one lens 28mm to 300 mm Quality built CONs Heavy picture quality is not as good as the 70-200 Need to be at high aperture settings to get a good DOF The cons are mitigated when you unexpectedly needed that 300mm with no time to spare and in the next moment you are...
  • Pros: Superior build quality, Super-sharp images
  • Cons: Semi-sharp images

Versatile, L-Series Quality, Heavy

  • Excerpt: Used this lens on safari in Kenya with my 5DMkIII. Very versatile throughout the range for shooting wildlife in good light, but I found it a bit short for birds. Fantastic for big animals like elephants at a distance, and as they come close in.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged
  • Cons: Heavy, Heavy As F, Poor in Low Light

Great Lens But VERY Heavy

  • Excerpt: Quality is excellent as expected for a Canon EF lens. Knew that lens was going to be somewhat heavy from other reviews, but it still was heavier than I expected. Not a good choice for hauling around on a hike.

Heavy but all in 1

  • Excerpt: This is a solid all 1 zoom. For a lot of the stuff I shoot, I never have the time to be swapping out lenses. The aperture is certainly a factor for interiors but I'm really trying to keep my work at 5.6 or higher most of the time.
  • Pros: Durable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy
