Reviews and Problems with Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM
Showing 161-170 of 500
28 May 2013
Excerpt: As with most Canon products they are well built and you get results. This lens is no different. At one point or another I have used all their 70-200mm lenses (including the latest f/2.8L IS II) and this is much lighter than all of them. I am rebuilding my camera collection and started small (EF 70-200 wise) with this lens and tried to shoot some auto racing with my nearly new 50D.
Excerpt: I am very satisfied with this purchase. This lens seems to be much sharper than my 24-105 and nails focus. The IS is somewhat noisy but not that big of a deal to me. The size is good but being white it is definitely not discreet. I used it indoors at my nieces' ballet recital and was able to nail some good shots in low light at 200mm. I'm happy and Adorama was fast with the shipping.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have had my 70-200 f4L since 2007. I've used it on a 30D, 7D, and now on my 6D. I also sometimes attach the 1.4x III extender when using it on the 6D. This by far has to be the best lens I have ever used. It is coming up on 6 years and I have never had an issue with it. The lens is consistently sharp and always performs when called upon.
Excerpt: I really don't know what to add from all the other comments. This lens is extremely sharp and well built. I also have the 24-70 f/4 and didn't realize how soft it was till I put this lens on. Would highly recommend this lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: Looking for an image stabalized 70-200, I also wanted a lens that was lighter than my 70-200 2.8 and easier to hand-hold. Ths lens filled both of my requirements. The size makes it perfect to keep in my camera bag and ready for use. It also makes it easy to hand-hold. Of course, the image stabilization adds greatly to this lens.
Pros: Canon L Quality, Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Sharpness is not so good at the corners of the frame and the built quality is not as good as you would expect from an "L" lens, but that's all you can criticize of this zoom. The 70-200/4 L is inexpensive, it has a unique color rendition (which I really love) it's light, compact, and it keeps its size even zooming. Considering its price, it is a very good purchase.
Excerpt: Great build. Light for its size. Fantastic image quality. As F4, not the greatest in low light, but that's to be expected. Image stabilization is loud, but it works. Expect shorter battery life due to the image stabilization. I also love that there is no physical exterior zoom mechanism; all internal. This means no lens creep and the ability to be a little more inconspicuous.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: Straight out of the box this lens was amazing. Of course receive it promptly from Adorama, world class shipping. The only thing you'll miss with this lens are great photos if you don't use it. This lens will make my top favorite in my bag.
