Great lens

Brian, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I really wanted the 70-200mm f/2.8, but being a college student that was a little out of my current budget. I am really happy with the f/4 though. It is amazingly sharp and is the longest tele lens I have owned so far. I mainly do landscapes so I am usually buying wide lenses. I am very pleased with my choice and have been using the lens a lot. Now the only problem is that I want a longer tele to reach out and capture more, maybe after college.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: No tripod collar included

Stabilizes well with Sony a7ii

  • Excerpt: Get a $ adapter and the Sony a7ii stabiblizes this baby very well for "prime" sharp images in the 70-135ish range, albeit with slower/inconsistent AF but the a7ii has great MF tools. Its a bargain for $ after rebate.

Very sharp lens

The Feature Factory, B&H Photo
29 January 2015
  • Excerpt: Video production, Blackmagic 4k camera-superb color, little distortion, little flare, so not as much need for ND filters. Autofocus actually works on the BMPC, though in practice best to use manual focus for 4k shooting.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Breathing

Great for the price

  • Excerpt: I use this on the 5Dmk3 as well as the RED Epic. Works great for a lightweight workhorse lens. Breathes pretty significantly. Somewhat slow autofocus, but not terrible. Pay the money if you want something faster (focus or fStop).
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Lens Creep

Incredible Performer

  • Excerpt: I would start by saying to ignore reviews that complain about "lack of IS". If you absolutely need image stabilization, do not buy this lens. That being said, the image quality in good lighting conditions is superb and very good when mounted on a tripod in lower lighting conditions. The AF is silent and fast and it is a relatively lighter lens then most in its class.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction

Excellent Lens

  • Excerpt: This lens is very sharp. I use it mostly for landscape photography and it is just what I wanted. I do not need IS because it is on a tripod most of the time. I also us it for close up work with a 25mm extension tube and I am very happy with the results. It is just a great lens.

  • Excerpt: I've had this lens for a little over a week now and have used it in the studio for portraits, at corporate events to capture personal interactions from a distance, and even outside for some architectural shots. All images are tack sharp with beautiful color. Great lens!Main planned use for this lens is as for video with my Canon 5DMkII.

Amazing Image Quality. Low Light okay

Matt Byck, B&H Photo
6 December 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is amazing especially considering it is the cheapest L-Series ever made. If you have a little more money to spend i would invest in the IS version of this lens. If you don't, however, this is quite possibly the greatest 70-200 f/4 available. Low light performance on this lens is not exceptional unless you have a tripod.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light
