Summary: Use it all the time on my Canon D60. I take Motocross pictures at amateur races. If my pictures aren't up to par it is probably on my end of expertise not the lens. The riders go from close to far areas.
Excerpt: This lens works great for action photos like kids sports. I haven't had a chance too use it for landscape or general shots yet but I am planning to take it on vacation this summer and use it a lot. Very sharp images but their is a little bit of weight to it but not bad.
It's a beautiful lens. Really sharp and the contrast is awesome

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).
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.
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...
