  1. Amazing Lens - I Am Selling a new one

    Reviewer: VP, Amazon
    14 July 2013

    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

  3. Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS

    Reviewer: Dave N, FutureShop

    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 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.
