Excerpt: photograph birds. excellent clarity. No soft focus issues at 200mm or even 400mm (with teleconverter). compared it with the sigma HSM 70-200 F2.8 lens that i have used for over 10 years and find this lens to be a lot better in every respect. <br />cons: Auto focus does not work with sigma 2 x teleconverter.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I primarily take landscape and architectural photos and weight is more of concern than low light level shots and do not need f2.8, so this lens was great choice. I'm getting tack sharp images with this lens. Love it.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged
Excerpt: What I love about this lens: <br />* Solid construction.<br />* Optical image stabilization and weather sealing<br />* Lightweight<br />* wonderful bokeh.<br /><br />What I didn't like: <br />* Canon should include the tripod mount with the lens. Other lens manufacturers include them (like Sigma).
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction, Weather Sealing
Kickin' optic: sharp, flare resistant, fast AF & tough!

Summary: The 70 to 200mm range is ideal for portraits, landscape and outdoor sports. Here's what I thought of my new EF 70-200 4L IS USM. CONSTRUCTION: The hybrid metal (barrel) and polycarbonate (trim) construction and seals on switches and mount make it tough, but reasonably light. Build quality is better than the EF 24-105 4L IS USM and similar to the EF 300 4L USM. The off-white finish is elegant and stays cool even in blazing sun.
Excerpt: I really wanted to get the 2.8 version until I realized how heavy it is, about 3.7lbs. I use this lens for nature and sports photography. This means I need to remain ready to shoot at all times. The idea of carrying around a 4lb weight was no good. Picture are amazing. I attached some below I took at a Dyamo game with my T4i.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This lens is superb for candid street photography. You don't intrude and have people staring at you or gesturing; you capture them as they are. The image stabilization (and the cost) is the reason I decided to go with the f/4 instead of the f/2.8. IS makes up for the extra stops the 2.8 would afford, and f/4 throughout is fine. The sharpness is likely superior to my other lenses. I say likely because I haven't shot every F-stop yet, but so far it's simply amazing.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
