Excerpt: I am a DIY filmmaker and owned the lens over a month. I have heard that this particular lens compares to primes in these focal ranges and while experts and users debate that point, it is a fine lens and well worth the money. It is easy to use, well built and solid. The IS motor is loud, and can be disengaged via a physical switch. Works flawlessly on Canon D5 MK3. If used for "running and gunning" or in the bush, get a UV or clear to protect the glass.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought this lens to extend my reach with a new Canon 5D II. I was amazed at how consistently sharp and vivid the images were that it produced. Also, I am v. frequently getting sharp images handheld at 1/30 at 200mm. The build is all that you would expect from an L lens and it is surprisingly light.<br /><br />I have also used it with the Kenko Teleplus PRO 300 DGX 1.4x and gotten very crisp results at the equivalent of 280mm with the IS system working beautifully.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Very Sharp
Conclusion: Simply put this lens is crystal clear, lightweight and a perfect go to lens when only a quality print will due. I am totally happy with the addition of the 70-200 L. I also have the 24-105 and 100-400 L's to compare from.
Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images
Excerpt: This lens is really sharp. Images at 200mm just turn out better than my other equivilent lenses.<br /><br />This lens is relatively light, which makes it different to the 70-200 2.8 lenses. I made this purchase based on a UTube video saying to get this lens as a backpack lens, and the heavier 2.8 lens for other obvious reasons. The UTube video said to buy both and I intend to. I recommend this lens without any hesitation.
Excerpt: I use it for portraits and party events. I love it! it give that great blurry look and i can shoot from far away to get the picture i want. Images come out great! It is a little heavy for me but worth it. ONly bad part is i have to be pretty far away to get the subject in the frame.
Excerpt: This is a multipurpose lens.<br /><br />I use it for wildlife / landscape photography as it is a very lightweight lens. Of course, as a 70-200mm it matches with portrait/wedding photography. <br /><br />But in fact, as it is a not so big lens, I take it with me all the time. I won't say the same about the 70-200mm f2.8. The best lens is the lens you use !<br /><br />Build and optic qualities are excellents. Focusing is excellent even in low lights. Very sharp.
Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Im a Professional Photographer in Sri Lanka and i needed a telephoto lense that is sharp and quick. so as all canon users go through the 70-200 problem of choosing between the 70-200 F2.8 and F4 IS. I decided to go with it due to its weight, Compactness, and Sharpness.This lense is extremely sharp at all F stops.very quick to focus.Nothing Bad to say about it
Pros: Easy to handle, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Low light performance, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
