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

The Digital Picture
2 October 2007
  • 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/4 L IS USM Lens. If you don't need the subject-action-stopping and background-blurring capabilities of the faster Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8 L 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

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.
