Perfect for Sports & Nature

CPA Photog, B&H Photo

  • 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

Possibly my best, sharpest lens

Alex, B&H Photo

  • 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
  • Cons: Heavy

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM review by hdhani

  • Summary: This is one of the best and most versatile tele zoom lens i've ever used. This lens won't give you back pain by carrying it all day long. Image quality is wonderful; at 200 mm, it can give you nice background blur. For candids, this lens shines. Low-light, non-flash photography is where this lens lags behind, but it's an f4 lens. You should've aware of this before you buy it. If you don't need f2.8, this lens will serve you good.
  • Pros: Image quality, build quality, weight, 67 mm filter thread, IS, price
  • Cons: No tripod collar, 'only' f4

Excellent image quality, portable

  • Excerpt: I have just had this lens a short time but am very pleased thus far. Spent months debating whether to get this or the EF 70-200mm F/2.8 IS II. We tried out the bigger lens twice and it just seemed too big and heavy for me to carry all day, even though I have a two-camera shoulder harness. I use a 5D3, so we decided that the high ISO capability of the camera could be used to offset the one stop of light difference between the two lenses. Thus far, no regrets.

Great "little" lens

Trish, B&H Photo
26 March 2013
  • Excerpt: This is my second Canon L series lens and the L series are unbelievable. The motor is a little loud but not something that is a problem. I bought it for landscape photos. In the 70-200mm arena, this lens is THE choice. I debated which one for a very long time. I couldn't decide about the extra $ on the f2.8. I did tons of research and read tons of reviews on both. I realized that I did not need the extra stop of light, weight, and size.

Great lens, not great focus

Just A Phenomenal Lens

justmaybe, Adorama
19 March 2013
  • Excerpt: I couldn't believe it when I opened the box. Great packaging and a really great experience holding it for the first time and attaching it to my 7D. I was going to get the 5D but decided to put the money into lens. I certainly wasn't disappointed with this lens. I considered the f2.8 but it is really a lot bigger and HEAVIER. Maybe I'll miss a shot or two but the f4 lens is great.

Even Used, its a superb zoom

  • Excerpt: On a 1.6x crop CCD, this lens may feel clausterphobic at times and is almost useless for portrait or indoor; for outdoor and wildlife, its exceptional. This lens brought me closer to some extraordinary wildlife and has helped produce some of my finest shots.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
