Showing 1-6 of 6
10 February 2011
Summary: Canon's update to its professional fast telezoom may look much the same on the outside, but internally it's been updated to give image quality that's quite simply the best in its class. Effective autofocus and image stabilization systems, plus full weather sealing, round off a compelling package.
Pros: Exceptional image quality, Superb build quality, including dust- and water-sealing, Highly effective image stabilization, Excellent autofocus and manual override
Cons: Relatively harsh rendition of out-of-focus areas of the image, Somewhat susceptible to flare with direct light sources in or close to the frame, Inconvenient design of tripod mount ring (can't be detached without taking lens off camera)
Excerpt: If you want to be a pro photographer, there are a number of must-have lenses. Exactly which you need depends on what you shoot, but of all the pro lenses the 70-200mm f/2.8 is probably the most popular.
