Excerpt: In the 70-200mm arena, this lens is a fantastic choice.

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...

In this situation I was left to choose between 70-200mm f4 L IS and 70-300mm f4-5.6 L IS.
