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.
Excerpt: I use it for portraits and party events. I love it! it give that great blurry look and i can shoot from far away to get the picture i want. Images come out great! It is a little heavy for me but worth it. ONly bad part is i have to be pretty far away to get the subject in the frame.
Excerpt: This is a multipurpose lens. I use it for wildlife / landscape photography as it is a very lightweight lens. Of course, as a 70-200mm it matches with portrait/wedding photography. But in fact, as it is a not so big lens, I take it with me all the time. I won't say the same about the 70-200mm f2.8. The best lens is the lens you use ! Build and optic qualities are excellents. Focusing is excellent even in low lights. Very sharp. It worth the price !
Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Im a Professional Photographer in Sri Lanka and i needed a telephoto lense that is sharp and quick. so as all canon users go through the 70-200 problem of choosing between the 70-200 F2.8 and F4 IS. I decided to go with it due to its weight, Compactness, and Sharpness.This lense is extremely sharp at all F stops.very quick to focus.Nothing Bad to say about it
Pros: Easy to handle, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Low light performance, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
