Summary: Because of the cost, I weighed this purchase heavily, but I'm so glad I bought it! My boyfriend and I were going on a trip to Africa, which honestly, wouldn't have been captured so well without this lens.
Excerpt: I am a semi pro photographer that made the switch from another brand 70-200 2.8 lens to the Canon 70-200 4.0 lens. I am in love , the new one is half the weight and size, clarity unbelievable, ease of use; put on camera and go.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Conclusion: This lens is so good it is almost unbelievable. The color this lens captures is beautiful and is very impressive. The lens zooms in and out with ease and focusing is precise and easy to work in manual setting.
Excerpt: After tons of research and back and forth between f/2.8 vs f/4, I purchased the Canon 70-200f/4L IS USM. This lens has incredible everything as described. At half the weight of the f/2.8, smaller size, and hundreds of dollars more in my pocket to buy another L series lens you can't go wrong.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I had been debating between this lens and the 70-200mm f/2.8L non-IS. I'm very glad I went with the f/4L IS because of the smaller size and the IS. There is a clear difference in sharpness when I have the IS turned on in lower light conditions.
Summary: I believe I got mine in 2006 or 2007 and it has never disappointed. The f4 works for most outdoor use and it is a lens you can carry easily compared to the 2.8 with foot. The amazing quality really showed when I used it with my now retired film body, but also shows when my 17-85 is at telephoto and...
Pros: Amazing image quality and image stabilization.
Cons: No weaknesses. Nicking it on price would not be fair because the big white Canon lenses are top tier and it seems like they spare nothing to make them.
Excerpt: I hope to use this lens for creative water/waterfall or water in motion shots with an ND Variable filter. I had a f/2.8 of the same style but down sized because I feel this one will do almost as much and I have money left over. It is light weight and fast.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
