Incredibly versatile & sharp lens
Posted by: Drew4MD from: Columbia, MD on
I adore this lens. I use it all the time and find it to be one of my most sharp and versatile lenses. I looked at both the f4 and f2.8 IS variants of this L lens and decided on the f4 because of weight and cost. With today's quality DSLRs, I found pushing the ISO a bit more than covered me for my needs, and the reduced weight made me very happy.
The build quality is excellent and I expect to own this lens fora very long time. The shots are sharp, exhibit excellent color and contrast, and autofocus is fast and precise. The only knock I had, and can't really call it a knock, is that the IS is audible. More so than my other Canon Ls anyway, but not enough for me to not recommend this lens to anyone looking for a fantastic lens that will make them happy with every shot.

Holy S*** !!!!!

My first L lens. It is an Indulgence. Thank you wife.
It is so good, one can get spoiled. One can see why a pro would need tools like this. They need fast, sharp and dependable equipment - that's what this offers. Does an amateur need this - I'll let you decide. I am not a pro and have no intention of becoming one. This is an indulgence but it makes taking pictures even more of a pleasure.
Three letters can be used to describe this lens -- W.O.W. !!!!
hope this is helpful

The canon 70-200F4L IS lens is one of the best lenses canon makes. It is very sharp-from corner to corner, it is very fast and quiet focusing, the focusing is internal so the barrel does not extend out OR rotate when zooming, which makes life easier when using filters. It is weather sealed (non-IS versions are not) so if you are shooting lightning, or storm chasing tornados, you don't have to worry about it getting wet. The image stabilization is fantastic, I previously owned the non-IS version and upgraded to this one and I could not be happier. You get 3-4 f-stops lower than you would otherwise get, which means you can handhold in low light. I hardly use my tripod anymore. This lens is ideal for just about anything, from portraits, to sports, to weddings, to zoo wildlife, to photojournalism. I highly recommend this lens. It is a bit pricey but it is worth it. I have cheap lenses too and you do get what you pay for.

This lens deserves the 5 star rating the reviews give it. I loved it the minute I took it out of the box. It is only off my camera when I am using my 24-105mm. It is lightweight, compact, well made and well worth the money. I have a 1.4x teleconverter on order and can't wait to try the two of them together. Depending on your needs but if you can only have one L type lens this is one I would take some time in looking at and consider. I do not think you will be disappointed.

One of Canon sharpest lens
Posted by: Al888 from: Wisconsin on
The Canon EF70-200mm f4L IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens is a great and versatile lens for landscape and wildlife photography. It is very very sharp with dynamic color. It is not too heavy and is very portable. The focus is just excellent.

A must-have lens
Posted by: ComputerGeek10101010101 from: on
Great lens. Takes sharp crisp images. Silent and very fast AF. But if you take lots of indoor shots or where light is limited and a flash is not an option, then I recommend the f2.8 version.
