Summary: I have this lens for over 6 months now and never been disappointed. The pictures are very sharp. Beautiful. There were times when I get blurry pictures but it's I whou2019s at fault. 99% of the time, I shoot available light u2013 both indoor and outdoor. I wish to have the f2.8L version. I loved it but because of the weight which is a big factor for me u2013 decided to reject it. I am not a big person and I agonized between getting the f/2.8L or the f/4L.
Summary: I finally pulled the trigger and purchased the 70-200 f/4 IS for my Canon 5D Mark II. I had been battling back and forth between the very expensive and very heavy 2.8 IS and wondered if I would regret getting the f/4. Prior to my purchase, I rented a 2.8 IS from Samy's Camera and had it for the weekend. I shot a great event. (you may see the results on Flickr (look for my acct: Techfrog, and look for the set called Pacsun Ballyhoo).
Best of the 70-200mm options in my opinion - a good blend of value and quality

Summary: It's obvious that this is a great lens when it receives the ratings it has (at the time I am writing this, there are one-hundred and nine 5 star ratings, six 4 stars, two 3 stars, and nothing lower). Still, I agonized over which of the 70-200's to get. All have received fabulous ratings, and all have certain merits to purchasing them: the F4 non-IS is one of the best value lenses you can get at about half the cost of this IS version, the F2.8 IS II is possibly Canon's...

Summary: SO FAR SO GOOD .NEED TO USE MORE TO SEE IF ANY NEGATIVES WILL COME UP.ALMOST BOUGHT EF 75-300 MM USM,TRYING TO UPGRADE REGULAR CANON EF 75-300 MM,BUT THIS LENS APPEARS TO BE A BETTER CHOICE.MAY HAVE TO GET AN EXTENSION ATTACHEMENT BEFORE I GO ON NEXT SAFARI
Summary: Very good lens for outdoor shooting in bright light. Lightweight and durable. Fast focusing and produces extremely sharp pictures when light is sufficient. For F4.0 lens having image stabilization is very important. Very versatile lens. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to get closer to the action.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
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.
