canon make 4 70-200 lenses, they know how to make a great telephoto zoom lens. the 70-200 f2.8 is an essential lens for professional photography- covering everything from close range sports, photojournalism, weddings, portraits and more. it is a heavy lens, so unless you have strong arms you probably wouldnt want to take it on holiday or use it for fun, this is not a fun lens to use, but if image quality is your priority then you can handle the weight. It works best when using a monopod or tripod with a fast 2.8 apperture it creates great background blur, it is a perfect lens for portraits. Being 2.8 it also works well in dimly lit churches, ...

To call it by its true name the 70-200mm F2.8 L IS is and will for a long time be, I believe, the best lens I have had the fortune of owning and using. Despite using this with a 350D the results I have managed to achieve have been beyond expectation. Colour, crisp edges and fine bokeh come as standard for this glass. Construction is a sturdy metal chassis enclosing top quality mechanisms, both for high speed autofocus and IS actions.

This lens is sharp, fast and focuses quickly. Comes with a lens hood and tripod mount. The IS will give you a 3 stop advantage over a non IS lens. A great lens for portraits as well as sports. Does wonderful bocca at wide apertures. If you can afford this lens it is a fantastic lens. Canon also makes the 70-200 2.8 non IS and also the 70-200 F4 non IS. These two lens are also great but if you shoot in low light conditions without a tripod or monopod then this is the lens to buy. Somebody asked about the IS. I use image stabilizer only for hand held shots. If the camera is on a tripod then the IS actually becomes disabled even when switched on. The IS works ... Read the complete review
