PC Magazine

  • 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 70-200mm f/4L IS USM Lens Review

SLR Lens and Camera Reviews
6 June 2009
  • Summary: Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM is clearly one of the best EF mount telephoto zoom lenses available on the market. The lens shows outstanding image quality with particular strength in the 70-135mm range. Combine this with excellent build quality, well controlled artifacts such as vignetting and chromatic aberration, and you get a winner on your hands.

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

Bob Atkins
23 July 2008
  • 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. It has an 8 element, 6 group construction and an 8 blade aperture. Minimum focus distance is 0.45m and the filter size is 72mm. The lens measures 85.4mm in diameter, 65.5mm in length and weighs 545g.

  • Excerpt: Take one of Canon's most popular lenses, the Canon 70-200mm f/4 L , add an up-to-4-stop Image Stabilizer and you get the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM Lens. If you don't need the subject-action-stopping and background-blurring capabilities of the faster Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS Lens , this lens will deliver everything else you need in a smaller, lighter and less-expensive package.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 USM L IS (full format) - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
23 January 2009
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 USM L IS is an amazing lens. It is truly outstanding when used on APS-C DSLRs and it suffers only from a minor quality deteriorations on full format DSLRs. The resolution figures are easily on prime levels throughout the whole range and even at max. aperture. Unlike most other full format lenses it manages to keep the vignetting on a moderate level. Lateral CAs and distortions are usually also nothing to worry about.
