Amazing Image Quality. Low Light okay

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
Excerpt: I purchased this lens for the quality I expected from an L series lens and was not disappointed in my initial day of shooting. While my preference is landscape photography and I usually require a wider lens when I do shoot, I was not able to get the wide shots that I wanted until I changed to my ef24-105 L4, I was still impressed with the shots I was able to get of the foliage in Central Park in the fall.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: After years and years of shooting with the Canon 70-200 f2.8, I recently purchased the f4 model and have been thouroughly impressed. Much, much smaller and lighter, super image quality. Great lens when f2.8 is not an absolute necessity, which is less and les often as high ISO quality in newer camera continues to improve. I love the samller size and manageabilty of this lens along with it's great performace.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Just starting out with a nicer camera and wanted to try a better lens. I wish I had gone with the 2.8 instead of the 4 but cost was a driving factor for me. I think I will be happy with it - but not thrilled. It is light so that is nice - I may change my mind after playing with it more.
