The best 70-200 lens

  • Excerpt: I have purchased this lens last week. After some test shots I have understood that this will be my primary lens forever. Very sharp, fast and giving out fantastic colors.

Buy it and cry once, pass on it and cry at every photo

  • Excerpt: I read a lot, saved a lot and finally decided based on the headline adage. What I have noticed using this lens in place of the 18-135 STM I got with my T4i is the color and photo quality that I now see which I did not get before.
  • Pros: Quality Construction

Fast, sharp, reliable

  • Excerpt: I mostly do landscape and outdoor photography, so sharpness, good color separation and tonality, and fast and accurate autofocus are all important. This lens has it all, at every focal length. It is as good as some macro lenses when used with an extension tube or the Canon close-up accessory lens.
  • Pros: Excellent autofocus, Sharp

  • Excerpt: I had the old version of this piece of glass. Same weight I should say. I noticed a more saturated pictures (non edited without a polarizer) compared to my old one. Slow focus sometimes. The picture has the +5 vibrance and +15 saturation.
  • Pros: Quality Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Great Improvement. Image Stabilization works its wonders!

  • Summary: Many of the reviews here are re-stating the obvious: It's a popular focal length, it's heavy, it's expensive, and it's sharp. We all know that, right? One can go to Flickr and search for the lens and see tons of examples from a particular lens. I'll talk about my experience with it.

Best lens I''ve owned!

Lens Guy, buydig.com

  • Excerpt: -Sharpness is razor through entire range -Even using at f2.8, it's sharper than any lens I own (50 1.4, 85 1.8, 25-105L, etc.) -IS is very quiet when kicks-in (Mark I model was very loud!

  • Cons: -Pretty heavy lens, you will need to use a strap that goes across your shoulder to the other side. A straight hanging neck strap will probably be a problem over time, maybe even just an hour or so. -The width of this lens may make handling it difficult for smaller hands (if this is you, try it ou...

but was not happy with the pictures of my grandchildren playing sports

Greg Warren, Amazon
31 March 2015
  • Summary: I bought a 70D, but was not happy with the pictures of my grandchildren playing sports. Daytime football was great, but anything in the gym or at night, not so much. I started talking to the photographers that all had a version of this. I debated about buying it, it is an investment.
