Canon 70-200 AWESOME lens

Crutchfield customer from Pittsburgh, PA on 1/30/2017

This is an awesome lens. I bought it to photograph sports and I've found myself using it as a carry lens. The 'L' rated lens has a much more defined contrast and much better image sharpness than my kit lens. The lack of IS isn't a problem since I'm taking pictures of moving subjects and the IS doesn't provide a benefit for movement. The f4 also serves me well since it is a fixed aperture, so the maximum will always be f4, unlike a constantly changing variable aperture lens. Well worth the wait and the investment. I would buy it again!

Pros: Image quality Build No external moving parts

Cons: None

Clean, sharp non-IS lens

George from Scotts Valley, CA on 12/18/2016

This lens produces amazingly clean, sharp images. It might just ruin you for "non-L" Canon lenses even though the L lenses are usually much more expensive than their non-L equivalents. Optically, it's wonderful, and the size and build are excellent too. It's light enough to carry around easily. There's only one potential issue that should concern you if you're considering buying this lens. This lens does not have image stabilization. If you're not using a tripod, you'll need steady hands and/or a willingness to use it at high shutter speeds, especially at the long (200mm) end of the zoom range where motion blur can be a real problem. The image-stabilized version of this lens is a lot easier to hand-hold, but it costs about twice as much and is a bit heavier.

Pros: Wonderful optical quality, excellent weather-resistant build

Cons: Lack of image stabilization

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

Don S from Chicago, IL on 8/1/2013

I purchased this length primarily for indoor sports and art performances. The lens surprised me with its speed to focus, sharpness, and the color accuracy. Considering it lacks the built-in IS, make sure you use some support if you shoot at the maximum focal length. With an updated body capable of high ISO shooting, I feel the max aperture of 4 should suffice in most cases for me. Nice pouch and a hood included.

Pros: Quick to focus Photo quality Relatively light Price

Cons: Lack of IS 200 mm may be short of outdoor sports

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Lens

JimCo from Valrico, FL on 5/24/2013

Excellent lens which I've used both inside and outside with great results. Recently took family pictures at a dimly lite school event. I was concerned about not having IS or a lower aperture in this venue. The pictures came out great! Colors are vibrant and clarity is outstanding. I also have a 15-85 zoom and the 70-200 is a nice addition. Next purchase will be a 1.4x extender to provide more range especially for wildlife photos.

Pros: Image quality, lightweight, fast auto-focus, price for capability, build quality,

Cons:
