Excerpt: I use the lens to shoot sports mainly. It lets in enough light that I can run a very fast shutter speed and my pictures have no blur at all. even in dark situations like Friday night football games you can use a fast enough shutter to stop all motion.
Excerpt: I am an amateur aspiring to go pro, and only just getting to grips with this lens, but I have to say Wow. Really. So versatile, well built and confidence inspiring, you won't want to take it off your body. Until recently my only L lens was a kit 24-105 f4 and it has performed impeccably.
Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Quality Construction
Excerpt: I've had the chance to really get to know this lens, both for photo and video purposes, and it is gold! Sharp, fast, accurate and a clean. It is and for ever will be a go-to lens in my fleet of lenses both for commercial and personal work.
Excerpt: This is a must lens in every photographer's bag for low light conditions. While this lens is well suited to a wide range of subjects and conditions it is the go-to lens for capturing a sunset background with a foreground subject. More suitable over its brother f/4 lens.
Pros: Easy To Use, Great in low light, Quality Construction, Quality Images, versatile
Excerpt: This is a terrific lens. The f/2.8 makes for gorgeous portraits from far enough back to allow them to be journalistic in nature. I've also used this lens with great results for an enormous stitched hi-res landscape (with over 60 images stitched together).
Pros: F28 In A Zoom Tele, Quality Construction, Terrific Quality
Summary: An awesome lens. This has to be on of the best lenses in the world, if not the best. AF is fast and tack-sharp, eand detail is astonishing. 1:1 crops look amazing, with very little distortion. A great lens for portraits, and if you are using a cropped sensor, then you have a lot of extra reach.
Excerpt: My first ever L lens and once you use one you will be spoiled! Wonderful Bokeh, I selected this lens because there were so many good reviews for its use for portraits. Expensive, yes, but if you can manage it in your budget, it will not disappoing.
Good quality pictures but I have to question the build quality and cost of ownership

Summary: I purchased this lens in December of 2013. Up until recently I would have given it 5 stars. However, after just 2 1/2 years of ownership the lens would no longer focus (either manually or via auto-focus).
