Amazing Lens but to IS or not to IS? That is the question!

  • Summary: I gathered all my non L lenses together and sold them off to purchase this lens. I must say, I am glad I did. After buying this lens I have not had the need to buy any other lens. It serves as my all purpose lens for portrait shoots, for landscapes, for sports...for anything. The images are VERY sharp...no...EXTREMELY sharp. You will be blown away by the quality this lens can produce. Downside: The lens is pretty heavy.

Stop stressing over it and jump in -- you will love it!

  • Summary: I agonized over this one for a YEAR. I am not a professional photographer by trade, but have come to love it as my hobby. When I recently upgraded from a Rebel to my 7D, I felt it was time to take the plunge. Man oh man, am I glad I did! My daughter is in gymnastics and they perform in caves. OK, not literally, but trust me when I say the lighting is as bad as it gets. With this lens, I was able to shoot at f2.8 1/250 @ 3200 ISO and got some amazing shots.

  • Summary: Several months ago I finally decided to shell out the 1400.00 on this lens. Quite simply it is one of the best investments in photography that I have ever made. The lens is outstanding, both in build quality and performance. Having a constant 2.8 aperture AND IS has enabled me to capture images that would have otherwise just been impossible.
  • Pros: Everything
  • Cons: Costly, but I don't believe overly expensive. this is one good piece of glass.

Very good for nature photography

  • Summary: Amazing product. Got the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lens about 2 months back and I am really happy with the quality of the pictures. I am amazed at the clarity of the pictures taken with very little light - thanks to f/2.8. I use the IS almost all the time unless I am shooting night time with very long exposure during which I use a tripod. The AF is very fast at all zoom lengths. Downside: * It is very, really very, bulky.

Great lens for both indoor and outdoor photography

  • Summary: I bought the lens as part of a paired replacement from my EF35-350 lens and am very, very happy with it. I've currently used it mostly for indoor flash-less sports photography and it's been great. Nice high speed still photos that capture fast action cleanly and crisply. Autofocus has been fast and accurate. The wide aperture with long zoom makes for some very nice narrow dept-of-field facial pictures.

  • Summary: What's there to say? It's a Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS lens!!! Shipping with a tripod ring, lens hood, and case, it is a simply outstanding, tack sharp Canon "L" lens; moreover, the Image Stabilization provides a two-stop-plus difference when hand-holding. Those features and its outstanding performance make it one of Canon's most desired lenses -- and my personal experience with it has been excellent.

  • Summary: I've been using the 70-200 f/4 for a couple of years, and realized that I really needed a faster lens with image stabilization. Justifying the price for a lens to feed my hobby was difficult, but am I glad I did! First, this lens is larger (I had to purchase a new sling camera bag to fit the lens) and a lot heavier. I shoot a lot of action stuff, mostly ski racing, shot on the hill.

  • Summary: After months of deliberation I sold my Canon 70-200mm f4 L lens and bought the f2.8 IS version. After using the f2.8 IS version for a few weeks I'm very impressed. The difference between this lens and the f4 L is massive. Yes, the f4 L was sharp however I always struggled to keep the shutter speeds high enough to ensure sharp shots and often resorted to increasing ISO levels (thereby introducing additional nooise).
  • Pros: Image Quality, Build Quality, Extremely Sharp, Image Stabilizer is superb
  • Cons: Maybe Price - But you get what you pay for!
