This is a really good lense, it is made from really robust metal and plastic. I use it on my cannon camera all the time. The best thing about it is that you can use the apateur 4.0 at all the focal length all the way upto 200mm zoom - for all the photographers here, you will know how useful this is when you are some distance a way from your subject and you want that small f number for the effect you are trying to achieve, or there just is not enough light at the location you want to shoot. The lens is a really nice weight, i dont know exactly how much it weight, it feels really well made. Another good thing about this is, that when you want to zoom into your ...

I've used the Canon 70-200mm lenses for several years, I'm a professional photographer & I've found it be a standard & essential part of my equipment. I've since upgraded to the 2.8 IS version of this lens, but I used this lens extensively before then. The first thing about this lens is it's somewhat unorthodox appearance, it's very large & a kind of white/grey tone, meaning it stands out very obviously in practically any situation. It is also very heavy, so bear this in mind if you're considering a purchase. This isn't really a walk-around lens, it's a heavy duty professional lens that you can use ruggedly & repeatedly. This IS ... Read the complete review

There are a few available options for 70-200mm lenses in Canon L lens arsenal. This is lower down the budget spectrum but none the less is a great true L lens that produces incredible imagery. The Canon 70-200mm series is probably the best optically constructed around. Some would say there are certain draw backs using this specific version, the cheapest in the series due to it's features but in the right hands this still can be a powerful piece of glass. It's not as fast, as wide open lens you would like in low light situations but it is constant aperture. So though out 70mm - 200mm there will be no available light loss. At f/4 wide open the images look sharp ... Read the complete review

a 70-200 is a very popular lens, I own the 70-200 2.8 IS which I use professionally but really it's just too heavy to carry around with me on vacation. The f4 version is half the weight and much more compact so is a joy to carry. The f4 version works ok in good light, but in the Uk the light is never good so you'll find yourself struggling to get handheld shots at 200mm without cranking the ISO for shooting in a studio, or on a tripod this lens is great, but for handheld shooting the IS version is a lot easier to use. Personally I can't recommend this lens, i'd say either get the IS version or get a handful of f2 prime lenses (50mm f1.8, 100mm ... Read the complete review
