Really like it a lot

  • Excerpt: I've only had it for a few weeks, so still getting to know the lens a bit, but its not looking like a steep learning curve. Does a great job. It's a very solid build and love the compact size but its big on quality photos. I've got this paired with a 70D, and quite happy with that combo.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Great For Handheld, Rugged, Sharp, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Tripod collar optional

  • Pros: Brilliant Pictures, Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: F4-56 Aperture

  • Excerpt: Last fall, I upgraded from a 7D with a 28 – 135mm lens I used most of the time, to a 5D Mark III with a 24 – 105mm lens – my first L lens. Quickly, I learned I often needed more reach, for "walking around" shots I like.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Heavy

Met my expectations

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens to be used on my second camera so I am ready for those shot where subjects are to close for my 400mm 2.8L. When you hold this lens in you hands, you know it is a high quality Canon L series lens. Subjects look bright through the lens, auot focus is fast and images are sharp.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
