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
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
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
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
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
Conclusion: Simply put this lens is crystal clear, lightweight and a perfect go to lens when only a quality print will due. I am totally happy with the addition of the 70-200 L. I also have the 24-105 and 100-400 L's to compare from.
Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images
Excerpt: This lens is really sharp. Images at 200mm just turn out better than my other equivilent lenses. This lens is relatively light, which makes it different to the 70-200 2.8 lenses. I made this purchase based on a UTube video saying to get this lens as a backpack lens, and the heavier 2.8 lens for other obvious reasons. The UTube video said to buy both and I intend to. I recommend this lens without any hesitation.
