No real surprises here

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens as an upgrade from the 70-200 F4L IS, so I was expecting it to be quite good, and a little bigger. No real surprises there: it's quite good, and a little heavier. If you've never owned one of the 70-200L lenses, that means it's extremely sharp, even wide open, and it's built like a tank. I haven't had a chance to really put it through it's paces, but I am noticing it doesn't focus quite as quickly in LOW light as I had hoped.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

First L lens - fell in love

A, Canon
1 July 2014
  • Conclusion: I am writing this partly in response to the previous reviewer (October 2013), who didn't like it, and couldn't use it to take sports shots - claiming it doesn't autofocus well, and he'd rather get a longer lens or one with IS. The latter comment is telling - IS has no effect on fast moving action! The shots I have of humpback whales breaching off Tasmania would suggest a 10% keeper rate is due to "operator error" - one shot doesn't work so well on horses.
  • Pros: Super-sharp images

*Esta Bueno, pero no tiene IS*

Marco Antonio, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Hola, yo realizo fotografía de Bodas y generalmente las condiciones de luz son deficientes, entonces cuando me llego el lente lo primero que hice fue probarlo en condiciones de poca luz... Me fue mal, obviamente cuando tienes suficiente luz es magnifico !!! pero para el uso particular que quiero darle no es suficiente, así que supongo que el 70 200 2.8 Is II USM debe ser el indicado para mi.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Poor in Low Light
