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
Excerpt: After months of research, I purchased my first L series lens, the Canon 70-200f/4L IS USM. This lens has incredible, fast autofocus and produces super sharp, crisp photo's. At half the weight of the f .8 and hundreds of dollars more in my pocket, I can't see how anyone would go wrong with this lens.
Summary: Image is excellent at all focals starting from f4. Close up image (at MFD) is very good, except at 135-200mm on my copy. For this situation I use only 70-100mm. The slipping focus is history now after free service.
Pros: excelent IQ, light weight, very good IS and finally but not the last excellent IQ :)))
Cons: the hood could be better, slipping focus but after service it's ok
Excerpt: Is versatile for closeups as well as distance photos. I used it to take a closeup of a blossom just across a small creek that I couldn't wade through and the lens produced a great close up shot with deep color, clarity, and just right blur in the background.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: Read all the reviews before committing to buy and was not disappointed, the IS all canon claim and the IQ beyond reproach. WOW this is one great lens..... to me well worth the premium over the older non IS version. Used with a 5d mk111 and f4 no real handicap even when used for sport/ low light.
