THE PERFECT LENS
19 June 2010
Summary: THIS LENS IS GREAT BECAUSE, ITS NOT TO HEAVY AND YET IT IS FAST. WITH THE F4 STOP AND THE IMAGE STABILIZER, IT MAKES IT FAST ENOUGHT SO YOU CAN GET GREAT PICTURES FROM THIS LENS. THE F2.8 IS TO HEAVY TO ADDS TO A CAMERA BAG, THAT HAS A FLASH UNIT AND ANOTHER LENS IN IT. CLEAN, SHARP, EXCELLENT COLOR MAKES THIS LENS WORTH THE MONEY. YOU WILL LOVE IT...
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Summary: Waited for weeks before purchasing since it is a big chunk of cash, for me. Great photos from this lens on my 7d. Easy to hand hold so, I carry this combo everywhere. Still becoming accustomed to the possibilities offered but, thrilled almost all the time.
Summary: Conventional wisdom tells us that primes are sharper than zooms. So much for conventional wisdom. I have never owned a lens sharper than this one. I owned the non-IS version previously and that was a great lens. This one is even better, and the 4-stop IS feels as if a giant pair of hands have come down to steady the camera. Look through the viewfinder with IS off and everything keeps wobbling around.
Pros: Small, compact, light, amazing image quality, highly effective IS
Summary: I just bought my first L series lens, the F4 70-200 IS USM lens. I am totally in love with it for the following reasons: Tack sharp images. I hand held a 20th of a second photo of a building taken at night...sharp. wow. Very light weight and well balanced on my EOS 50D camera body. Incredible bokeh and portrait lens. The diameter is narrower than my other lens, the 18-200 EF lens. I like that. It's easier to handle because of that. Quiet, sharp, wonderful lens.
Summary: I am not a professional photographer. I am just a amateur that likes to play around with photography. This lens is my first L lens purchase. For years I have been purchasing the best lenses at the lowest prices (with lowest prices being the deciding factor). I would go to different sites with lens reviews and comparisons (Bob Atkin's site was one of my favorites) and find which lens was rated as good or really good at low cost (usually under $300).
Summary: I bought this lens about a week ago. I really like the zoom range and sharp focus for moving objects. I photgraphy a lot of animal nature pictures and this camera has worked well so far. Another great plus is that it is relatively light. I also have the 24-105mm and 24-70mm L glass and they are more than double the weight. I have a several Canon L series lens 6 in total currently and I would definitely recommend this lens.
