Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM Review

  • Summary: Overall, the f/4 lens clearly plays second fiddle on paper but it is a very easy lens to carry and to use. Though it is expensive it is only roughly half that of the f/2.8 version, based on Canons SRPs.

  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens captures impressively sharp images and is optically stabilized. It's a good option for shooters who can't afford an f/2.8 zoom.
  • Pros: Optical stabilization system. Fixed aperture through zoom range. Relatively light. Sharp images.
  • Cons: Edges soft when zoomed. Adding a tripod collar is expensive.

Canon EF 70-200/4L IS USM and EF 50/1.2L USM

Bob Atkins

  • Conclusion: The EF50/1.2L is a totally new optical design (there was an old FD 50/1.2L) and uses a molded aspheric rear element (the 50/1.0L used two very expensive ground and polished aspherics). It has a true ring type USM motor and a high speed CPU for fast focus.

  • Excerpt: It's the IS in the name that distinguishes the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM from the cheaper 70-200mm f/4L USM. The lenses are virtually the same size and shape, but the more expensive of the pair comes with built-in 4-stop image stabilisation (IS).
