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.
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.
Excerpt: Been using the f4 version for about ten years, and after renting the f2.8 for an event fell in love with it. Sharp , great bokeh and procuces great images. Of course Adorama is the place to purchase all your photographic needs.
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.

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.
