Excerpt: I just received my lens a couple weeks ago and have not really had the opportunity to use it much. From what I can tell so far it takes quality images. The motor is loud but not something that bothers me. I bought it for landscape photos and for capturing images of ranch animals.
Excerpt: Save you're time and buy it , I read a lot of reviews about it every where , such a superb lens i can tell you as a user it wont let you down unless you can afford more for 2.8 version ... Why ADORAMA !!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
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.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, 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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
