Excerpt: On a Canon 60D, this lens is amazing. Built like a tank, it feels very well made. It is very nicely made as the zoom is inside the housing. Great as it does not extend the lens. I have used it for outdoor / action /sports / landscape shots and it has been unbelievable. Should have gotten this lens sooner. Very sharp, razor sharp. The colors are dead on. I have very little adjustment for sharpness or colors. Autofocus is instant. Excellent for action / sports shooting.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have the 70-200mm f/2.8IS II USM also and I almost sold this lens when I got that one. But man am I glad I didn't. The 2.8 is a monster in size and weight. It's a beautiful lens, of course, but for most portrait work in a studio or on location, you'll find that shooting at f4 works perfectly well for the results you need. Again, I am amazed at the weight difference, which makes this lens so much more versatile.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Soon after this lens arrived I got the chance to shoot from a small airplane. Enormous vibration and wind against the lens. Of 250 shots, 150 were good, 50 were bad and 50 were TRIPOD sharp! And I am fussy.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is one of my favorite lenses. I'm not going to write a technical review, but after carrying the 2.8 for years at night time events, this has been an absolute joy and easy on the hands for long periods of time. Have also used it in low light situations, and fashion shows with the ISO cranked up a little bit on a Canon 6D and 5D III, which tend to handle high ISO levels incredibly well. Would probably prefer the 2.8 for really low light work..
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: The images I got from this lens (traded up to the IS model) are stunning. The first ones i shot in comparison to ones from previous lenses were so good I almost peed myself. This is definitely my favorite lens.
Excerpt: This is my second "L" series lens, and it is great! I debated on the f/2.8, but after reading other reviews I decided it wasn't worth it. The extra F-stop is not worth the extra grand.I have taken the 70-200mm f/4 to a few baseball games and a volleyball game. It has been great at the baseball games. I am new to photography, but don't use it on program mode. This lens on my Canon 7d captured some great shots. I actually got some ball on bat shots!
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
