  • Best value for the money

  • July 25, 2011
  • By: Kris

Simply put, this is a great lens, and possibly the best value for your money. Produces very sharp images. Fast - f4 at any focal length. Sure, it doesn't have IS, but it is about half the price of the IS version. Very fast and quiet focusing (thanks to USM motor). Solid feel and build - but not too heavy. I would highly recommend this lens to anybody looking for a telephoto zoom.

  • Replaced, but Still a Contender

  • July 24, 2011
  • By: Paul

Long ago, as a semi-professional stock photographer, I carried in my kit a "sport" lens: an f2.8 80-200 Tamron that was de rigeur to image all things that moved at medium range. Fast-forward 15 years or so to the digital age, and I cannot help comparing that old standard with my Canon EF 70-200 F4. Although superseded in the eyes of many by its image-stabilized successor, the Canon lens, with its L-quality optics and build, is slim and lightweight to a degree that puts my old (and very good in its day) Tamron to shame. Its hand-holdable lightness makes up for the one stop in aperture, and I have had excellent results with it at public events like the RCMP musical ride. The images that it produces, even wide-open, are crisp, While I prefer to have longer lenses at hand for subjects like birds, cropping files from the Canon 70-200 f4 have also yielded good avian images. Canon's newer IS version of the lens, which also boasts slightly improved optics, is undoubtedly worth a look, but the original non-IS version, lighter, with 90% of the capability and selling at a discount, also remains a worthy contender, especially for those on a budget or who prefer to travel light.

  • It is easy to be impressed by this lens

  • August 14, 2012
  • By: Nathan

I don't typically shoot this focal length range, but this lens is just such a joy to shoot with that that is changing. Partly because this lens is so packable that it makes it out on my adventures, and partly because this is just a very solid lens. I find it balances very well on my 50D body, especially with the optional tripod mount. It balances so well that I have been able to hand hold one or two stops slower than I am used to at these longer focal lengths. The build quality is great. The zoom and focus controls are smooth and easy to use. Autofocus is very fast. This is also a fantastic close-up lens when paired with extension tubes. As far as images go this lens may disappoint extreme pixel peepers if they compare it to the newer models, especially those with IS. I have found the images I get from this lens to have excellent color and contrast. I have been happy with the resolution on my 50D.

  • Quality hands down

  • March 27, 2012
  • By: Jan

I recently purchased the Canon EF 70-200 f/4L USM series lens and it's proven to be the sharpest, quickest and most solid lens out of anything Canon and Sigma produce under the 1000$ dollar mark. In this review i'll be comparing the 70-200 lens to the EF-S 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS lens which I previously owned. When I first tested out this lens, I noticed the Auto Focus (AF) was incredibly fast and accurate compared to EF-S 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS. That is a major thing in a lens as the photographer wants to capture those short breathtaking moments. The EF 70-200 f/4L USM is a professional & luxurious series lens offering the most out if it. Offering no Image Stabilization it still produces excellent results in low light situations. The low aperture (f/stop) of a constant f/4 is rapid but does not enter as much light as the more expensive f/2.8 version. The included lens hood is a nice bonus as it prevents too much flare coming into your photos and of course makes this rather large lens look even bigger! The pouch is a good safe way to carry the lens if your bag is too small to fit this lens. The sharpness in this lens wide open throughout all ranges is tack sharp without a doubt. Last thing that is great about this lens is that it's good to travel with, it's light (compared to the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II) and compact. I give this a 5* hands down, it's affordable and gives you everything you need. Photos taken with this lens are on

  • Can't go wrong

  • March 02, 2012
  • By: Thomas

This was my first high-end lens. It should be yours, too. There is just no better value for your money. The quality is phenomenal. The price - affordable. The lens is solid and sturdy. It doesn't feel fragile and yet you can hold it comfortably because it's surprisingly light. If you're looking for a high-quality telephoto zoom, this is the one.

  • Great Value

  • October 14, 2011
  • By: C.Y.

This is, simply put, a great lens. The image quality and sharpness is amazing. However, it does have its limits. It works great outdoors for sports and such provided the lighting is good. For indoor sports, lighting tends to be poor, and honestly, even the 2.8 will be too slow, so if that's what you're looking for - check out a faster prime. For sports, the lack of IS doesn't really matter since your shutter speed will be so high--just bring along a monopod or tripod if necessary. If you're using this more for portraits/stills, then you might want to consider the IS version instead. This lens is also much more practical to carry around than the 2.8, which takes up much more space and gets heavy in your hands quickly. In short, this is a fantastic lens for outdoor treks or shooting some outdoor sports, and is really an amazing value.

  • Sick Lens!

  • August 03, 2012
  • By: Jeff

Great lens, very sharp and quick AF. Image quality is on par with the 2.8 version that is $2600. Best thing is, with the new 5D Mark III, I can boost the iso high enough that an F/4 Lens can now take the place of my 2.8's. Can also keep the shutter speed high enough to not need IS. Save yourself some money, this is the lens to get if you can work with high iso. 10 times more enjoyable to use as well because its so light and easy to carry.

This is a fast, quiet focusing lens with "tack sharp" quality. This is my first L series lens and the images it produces have more than exceeded my expectations. I would hightly recommend this lens.

  • Amazing!

  • January 08, 2016
  • By: Brennan

This is my first L lens and boy is it a good one even without the IS. I do mostly out door wildlife and sports photography and the details this lens pulls in is remarkable. Youre able to find this used for under 500 and for the quality youre getting youd be dumb not to pick it up.
