Excerpt: In the 70-200mm arena, this lens is a fantastic choice. It's a great balance between performance and weight - the f/2.8L is twice as heavy, and much larger overall – and the IS in the f/4L is truly excellent. I was on the fence deciding between this model and the non-IS one, given the enormous price difference, but the IS is decidedly worth it.I didn't want to be tied to using the lens with a tripod, and the IS combined with the reasonably light weight means that is an...
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
This recently purchased lens on eBay shows the quality of digital images.

Summary: This is an excellent value for money lens. It is light, compact and the build quality is very good. I am using this lens in conjunction with a Canon 1D MK11 and the picture quality is really pleasing with rich vibrant colours on show after taking a series of still life flower images. With regards to the zoom, the turning circle is just so neat and so user friendly when engaging different focal lengths. This is a real plus and minimum effort is required.

Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I knew I needed a longer lens, longer than 70mm, for an upcoming trip in Montana. Therefore I started to look for a zoom lens to cover 70 to 200 possibly 300mm range. Soon I had to rule out both 70-200mm f2.8 with and without IS due to their weight and cost. Though the price is very attractive I quickly excluded the 70-200mm f4 L lens too, due to the lack of IS. In this situation I was left to choose between 70-200mm f4 L IS and 70-300mm f4-5.6 L IS.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: So far, this lens is exactly what I expected it to be and worth the price. It is my first "L" series lens and it has made it worth the wait. The images are far beyond my previous lens (55-250). I know, no comparison. Definitely recommend this lens.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I was looking for a lens that was good for traveling but also have great optical quality. I had a friend that had the f/2.8 version, but it was a bit too heavy for me and definitely would be straining on long trips. This lens was perfect! Great color and sharpness. The only problem is that occasionally the focus isn't accurate, but this may be related to my camera body rather than lens itself.
Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Sharp, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I first purchased this 70-200 F: 4L IS USM but seems to me not to be quiet enough.. the "hummmm" sound of the is was very noticeable. I returned and bought the II version instead (2,8 is II). This version F: 4L IS is sharp, imega quality is excelent, build quality is also excelent.. but the Af performance could be better.. ok, $$$$ better to go up to the new 2,8 is II, but still could be better. Last, but not least, the is is very audible. B&H customer service, the best.
