Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I made the choice I decided on this lens after much testing of lenses at my local camera store. I decided on this one, rather than the IS version to keep the cost down. I knew going in that a tripod or monopod would be necessary if shutter speeds were going to be slow. I didn't anticipate that being a problem for me given the type of pictures I intended to take with this lens, but I was just blown away by the quality of the results. The first place I used it was at the National Zoo in DC - WOW, that's all I can say. Then I used it to shoot a nephew's Little League game. Shooting wide open (f/4) at 200mm enabled me to isolate the players against a softened, fuzzy background and everyone went bonkers over the shots. Needless to say I am very, very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great first "L" lens I have had this lens for over 6 months and have taken a few thousands pics so far. First, this is not a small lens and does not have IS. So, unless it is really bright (plenty of lighting) then a tripod is a must. However, it is "L" series glass and there just isn't anything like it. Hand held in full sunlight I got some exceptional pics. Also, with a monopod I was able to get some really good action shots of softball games. All in all, if you have the money get the IS version (or better yet get the f2.8 IS version) but if you are on a budget like me, this is a great addition to your arsenal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First L lens certainly not my last This lens is simply amazing! It is the sharpest lens I have used to date, with amazing overall IQ. The AF is lightning fast, and always spot on. For what I am using this lens for, I did not need the IS version, but if you plan to hand hold in low light, or at full telephoto I recommend it. The only thing that would make this lens perfect would be if it came with the tripod collar, rather than having to purchase it separately (which I did)...and maybe a macro setting too...for 200mm at least. If all the L lenses are similar in quality to this one, I will certainly be replacing some of my other lenses with the L versions. Stop thinking about it and buy this lens already...you won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lens for the money This lens is very quiet although not as quiet as others. the speed of the usm is great, optics are unbelievable, and the F/4 through the whole range is awesome for video because you dont get the lighting changes when you zoom. build is awesome but could be a bit better. the internal zoom is great so no dust or dirt can get into the lens if your outdoors. Overall, extremely satisfied with this lens and the value. After one day at the track it was totally worth the money. A huge step up from the kit lens or other telephoto lenses in optics and build quality. Plus it comes with a bag and lens hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lens I Ever Purchased I have had my 70-200 f4L since 2007. I've used it on a 30D, 7D, and now on my 6D. I also sometimes attach the 1.4x III extender when using it on the 6D. This by far has to be the best lens I have ever used. It is coming up on 6 years and I have never had an issue with it. The lens is consistently sharp and always performs when called upon. Over the 6 years of owning my 70-200 f4L I have photographed everything with it including wildlife, sporting events, airplanes, and scenery. No matter what the subject matter is I always get images that are sharp and crisp. This lens was my first "L" series and because of it I will never buy anything else. I personally do recommend something like a 24-70 or 24-105 to complement the lens and to consider the 1.4x if using this on a full frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EF 70-200mm f/4L USM This is the first L lense I purchased. After researching and realizing how important glass is, I decided to purchase a L lense for my 300D Digital Rebel . However, prices were a little to steep. IS was an expensive feature I felt I could live without since I use a monopod most of the time anyway and a tripod for important stuff. I was very pleased. I have tried for quite a while to take a picture of the moon and was always disappointed with my standard 70 - 300 mm lense. It was so soft and the detail was missing. I tried the same shoot with this lense the results were fantastic. They especilly improved when I later purchased the new 5D Mark II. Even a better combination. I was able to keep the cost down and I was able to purchase another lense the EF 17-40 mm f/4L USM as well for a combined cost of one of the IS lenses. I was happy to put the money into the new camera. The photos are outstanding!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastically sharp This lens was my first L-series lens. It is still one of my favorites. The images it shoots are extraordinarily sharp. Color and contrast rendition are both excellent. The autofocus is fast, and zoom action is smooth. It is very lightweight considering the L pedigree... Very easy to carry around. The only real con is that it's f/4, and not the f/2.8... But it's also half the price. If you're looking for a good, standard-range telephoto zoom, and aren't shooting indoor sports, this lens is an excellent choice. The price tag is similar to that of some of Canon's standard-grade lenses, but with L-class image quality. The autofocus is fast enough to track sports, or even a Blue Angels fly-by... Let alone wildlife. Four years after buying this lens, I am still very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight & Versatile I've used a 70-200 2.8L & a 100-400 F4-L. This one is a featherweight by comparison. Images are crystal clear! I shoot mostly outdoor sports in daylight and didn't feel the need for the bulk of the 2.8 or IS. Auto focus is lightning fast. My friends are amazed at the sharpness of my photos. Only lacks a tripod mount, which I will purchase soon. I highly recommend this lens!
