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: The lens is photographically great however the built quality / inner design is likely weak and seems to have flaws. I have purchased this lens 4 years ago from Adorama as downgrade for my f/2.8 IS mark one lens as it's way more portable and I don't shoot indoor sports nor weddings any more.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, IS, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I had until now been using the kit 70-200mm zoom lens that came as part of my D-SLR camera package. Having bought the Canon L macro lens earlier this year and been blown away by it, I was all eager to get the L zoom lens too.
Summary: I ordered this lens new from an online merchant recently and after taking it out to shoot for one day, I've found that it performs remarkably- when it performs. I am not rating the 70-200 F/4L IS in general, but rather the one that I received.
Summary: Like so many others before,I worried whether I could justify the expensive of buying this lens.I have a 500d,18-55 kit lens,f1.8,Sigma 70-300 and a 55-250IS(which was bought to compensate for the Sigma's lack of performance in low light).I must say that I have been very happy with the 55-250's...
Summary: Optically speaking this lens is second to none! However even while it is claimed to be of professional quality I have to disagree: It seems that the mechanical parts are not better than any cheap consumer grade lens. I happened to bang this lens against the railing on a ship while turning around.
Summary: My copy had a slight focusing issue, but hey... with so many great reviews/copies for this lens there's bound to be one that slips through the cracks. Amazon as usual were fantastic with support and they generated a return coupon for me immediately.
