Excerpt: Love this lens, it is my first L series and what a difference from kit lenses. I'm a novice and wanted a good lens for my nature photography . Excellent lens for me not to heavy ,very good image stabilizer ,my pictures are so clear , excellent in clarity , super sharp images with all apertures.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is the best L series lens that I own. The pictures are very sharp with wide open aperture. I mainly got this lens for my landscape photography but the IS was very handy at a recent wedding event. It does make a cranky noise from time to time and the autofocus is noticeably slower than its big brother f/2.8. I don't own f/2.8 I just happened to shot few shots at the store and noticed the enormous weight.
Excerpt: After searching for a good quality lens over a months, i came across this lens. The build quality of the lens is amazing. I started taking pictures to evaluate the performance and to my surprise, this lens met my expectation. Perhaps, IS and USM is the main driving factor for stable images.
Excerpt: I rented the newer IS II lens a while back for filming a church retreat. It was so big and cumbersome that I just could not 'run n gun' with it at all. This lens is another beast all it's own - lightweight, sharp as a tack focus, FAST focus, great clarity, beautiful DOF - it's just perfect for what I do, which is video production. I have done one interview with this lens, and I'll just say that it is a world of difference in the look I am getting. Just terrific.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
Summary: I've been looking for this lens' range for a long time. I use it on my Canon 5D MK II and occasionally on my 60D (when I need the reach). I'm glad I chose this lens when compared to the F2.8. The F4 is about 1/3 the weight. The clarity and contrast needs no adjustments. The picture quality of the other lens makers in this same size just doesn't compare. This is a great lens to have in your bag.
Excerpt: I love this lens. I was torn between this and the 2.8, but ultimately I couldn't convince myself to spend twice as much. Maybe sometime. Anyhow, this lens is sharp, AF is very fast, and its not really all that heavy. Very happy.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged
