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
Pros: Sharp beyond belief, no CAs, incredible contrast, oh, and IS. Cons: Price seems like a con but when you see the images it produces, all you'll do is smile and forget about the price. It's worth it. 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 performance and portability to meet user demands.
