So far, so great

  • Excerpt: I purchased the 70-200 f/4L IS after using an EF 70-300 f4-5.6 IS for a couple months and being disappointed in the image quality and sharpness. The new lens is very sharp from edge to edge, even at full zoom. Functionality is great, and it's not much heavier than the 70-300. I especially love the full-time manual focus because I am frequently trying to find birds in brush and trees, and auto-focus doesn't always cut it.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Very Sharp
  • Cons: Not As Useful In Lowlight

Superb Image Quality

  • Excerpt: The compact size, compared to the F2.8 makes it an excellent choice for carrying around all day. Image stabilization added more opportunities when shooting hand held. Image quality is very good.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Magnificent quality L Canon At Its Test

  • Excerpt: Lemme tell ya somethin' partner, 200mm at its best even with f/4, I was contemplating between f2.8 and this one, but overall pros and cons made me decide to go with this one. But when it comes to weight and IS ,this one CAN NOT BE BEAT! The lens takes great picture, and the video quality is amazing. I'm used to f2.8 on all my L series and this is the first f4 ,but it impressed me .
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged

Another Amazing Lens

  • Excerpt: Have been practising with this lens for a couple of weeks. I can wonder around with this lens without the weight becoming a problem. I also really like the heavy duty build. All I can say is lucky I have an understanding husband as I am sold on the 'L' series lenses and are keen to add the 24-70 to my kit in the near (I hope) future.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Excellent performance with reasonable $

  • Excerpt: This lens is the best in its class. Has IS, weather sealed, exceptional IQ, and MUCH lighter and smaller than f/2.8 version. I use it on a 7D, and focus is instantaneous and precise. The only complaint is regarding a click noise when IS stops working, not a big deal though.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

70-200mm f/4l IS - DIY film maker

pazo pittman, B&H Photo
7 November 2012
  • Excerpt: I am a DIY filmmaker and owned the lens over a month. I have heard that this particular lens compares to primes in these focal ranges and while experts and users debate that point, it is a fine lens and well worth the money. It is easy to use, well built and solid. The IS motor is loud, and can be disengaged via a physical switch. Works flawlessly on Canon D5 MK3. If used for "running and gunning" or in the bush, get a UV or clear to protect the glass.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Great telephoto

Bob Sanderson, B&H Photo
5 November 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought this lens to extend my reach with a new Canon 5D II. I was amazed at how consistently sharp and vivid the images were that it produced. Also, I am v. frequently getting sharp images handheld at 1/30 at 200mm. The build is all that you would expect from an L lens and it is surprisingly light. I have also used it with the Kenko Teleplus PRO 300 DGX 1.4x and gotten very crisp results at the equivalent of 280mm with the IS system working beautifully.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Very Sharp
  • Cons: NONE

Excellent Product!

  • Excerpt: Before buying the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L, I also considered the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L but finally decided for the f/4 for the following reasons: [a] The f/4 is quite close to the f/2.8 in terms of Image quality [b] it has the same high built quality of Canon L Lenses [c] it is smaller and nearly half the weight of the f/2.8L.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Sharp images, Strong Construction
