Great lens

  • 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

Very sharp lens

  • 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

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
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Great Pictures on my first day out

Stevie Wonderful, B&H Photo
21 November 2014
  • 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
  • Cons: Heavy

Big performance, Small package

BCPix, B&H Photo
16 September 2014
  • 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.

One of the best deals in quality lenses

  • Excerpt: Really happy with it. Use the lens recreationally, mostly to take kids sports shots at a high shutter speed, the non-IS isn't really an issue.
