I always check out a new lens to see if it needs any in-camera micro adjustment to the autofocus. I compared it to my 24-105 which has always been very sharp. The 70-200 is even sharper, so I'm quite happy. The only negative is that the IS motor is louder than my 24-105 and I wouldn't have expected that. Read more
This is an amazing lens. I buy and sell camera products. I am selling a brand new lens with Canon warranty in GTA. It has never been opened, and I sell only in person, in cash. http://toronto.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-sell-cameras-camcorders-Canon-EF-70-200mm-f4l-IS-USM-Lens-Brand-New-Never-Opened-W0QQAdIdZ503364256 Read more
Optically speaking this lens is second to none! However even while it is claimed to be of professional quality I have to disagree: It seems that the mechanical parts are not better than any cheap consumer grade lens. I happened to bang this lens against the railing on a ship while turning around. This resulted in a retaining ring inside the lens to break. As a result the lens became totally useless, which was rather annoying since it happened on a holiday trip. Read more
This is one of my "trinity" of zooms I use on my 40D and 50D. If you never have tried a a professional level lens (they are called "L's in Canon-ese), you will be shocked at how smooth and solid a lens like this is! On a crop sensor (where it "looks like" a 112-320 on a full frame sensor like a 5D Mk II), it has incredibley excellent IQ (Image Quality) compared to less expensive lenses. The four stop IS allows you get photos you would never even attempt otherwise. Read more
Quite simply an excellent lens. As sharp as primes in its telephoto range, great contrast and colour, and state of the art IS. What it gives up in maximum aperture to the f2.8 version can be forgiven considering it's half the weight and 2/3 the cost. Read more
The EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM is a lightweight, compact L Series telephoto zoom lens with Image Stabilizer. The optical Image Stabilization in the new EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens provides up to an incredible four stops of shake correction-a first for Canon IS lenses. The use of fluorite UD lens elements provides excellent optical performance in terms of resolution and contrast. These features, together with its water-and dust-proof construction, provide both the perfor…
