Best lens!...great glass...It's hefty as good glass needs to be....The image stabilization help this even further be allowing you to hand hold the camera at shutter speeds that stop the action, but would normally be blurry from camera shake at a focal length of 200 mm.
Canon EF 70–200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens This telephoto zoom lens is an essential tool for professional photographers and skilled amateurs. The variable focal length makes it useful for photographing a broad range of subjects, and the 2.8 maximum aperture functions well in low-light situations. Snap candid portraits, stop the action at sporting events or compose wedding photos with exceptional blurred backgrounds.
a must buy...Best bang!...Very nice piece of glass for everyone....This lens on the D3200 body received a score of 24 on DXOmark- the website compared to 12 for the 18-55 lens and in general just seems to get more out of the scene and more out of the camera and i'm sure would do better on higher end DX body's.
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Standard Lens: Whether you're a beginner or professional, you'll love this compact, lightweight lens from Nikon. The normal angle of view captures approximately what the human eye sees, making it a great all-around lens. Plus, the f/1.8 maximum aperture is ideal for creating softly blurred backgrounds and shooting in low light.
Fun Lens...good buy...Speed of focusing, glass, and overall improved greatly....The revised Canon 50mm is a nice improvement from the prior model - with a larger (and more quiet) focus ring and better auto-focus (along with sharp photos and a great price) - this one lens any photographer should not be without.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Standard Lens: Capture important moments in your life with this standard lens, which works with your compatible Canon DSLR EF-mount camera. A circular aperture with 7 blades helps you add creative background blur.
Good lens...Nifty 50...What a nice piece of glass....Offers a nice "Standard" view of your scene, nice fast aperature at wide open (f1.8) and closes all the way down to f/22 (depending on the body and the amount of light, among other things).
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Standard Lens: A perfect everyday lens for any photographer, the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G offers fast autofocusing combined with an integrated lens coating to deliver clear and crisp images. The wide-open aperture is ideal for low-light shooting and creating images with beautiful background blur.
Awesome lens...Amazing Lens...Flawless piece of glass, a true gem...The lack of image stabilization is a minor point, while it might have been nice, it also would have made the lens heavier and most pros don't rely on IS, particularly at such close range.
Canon EF 24–70mm f/2.8L II USM Standard Zoom Lens: Built to handle the demands of professional use, this lens is durable as well as dust- and water-resistant. Fluorine coatings on the front and rear surfaces keep smudges and fingerprints to a minimum.
Fast- f2.8!...Great glass...So glad I went with the L glass....This lens is razor sharp from f2.8, has beautiful bokeh, decent AF speed (though I mostly focus manually at macro distances), good MFD and 1:1 macro reproduction.
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens: Experience a broader range of your DSLR's capabilities with this mid-telephoto macro lens. Image stabilization helps to ensure that your photos are clear even at very close range. Capture fine details with unprecedented clarity.

good lens...Love it...It's evident that it's made with great glass....It provides sharp optics and less chromatic aberration than the 35mm 1.8 and its distortion free (mainly because of its focal length).

Good lense...Nice zoom...Lens is good quality glass, performs well....This, like all Canon lenses, is a high quality lens and with the focal lengths beginning at 55mm - this can easily be your "only" lens - replacing the typical 50mm with the added benefit of zooming smoothly to 250mm to get you right in the action.
Snap sharp, vibrant photos at a distance with this Canon EF-S 8546B002 telephoto lens, which features a 55-250mm focal length for flexible zooming and optical image stabilization to reduce the effects of camera shake.
Great lens...Worked ok...Excellent range (18-300), light weight, good glass, fast....It is more expensive that a few others I tried, but it focuses better in low light action pictures, which is important to me.

Solid lens....Good lenses...Canon makes great glass....Can't thank Best Buy enough for the great customer service; the staff were great, wonderful hold system (the store I went to didn't have the lens, but the associate located it at another store and placed it on hold for me), and an excellent return policy that made me rest easy, should I have purchased the wrong lens, I could return it for full credit.

Great lens...Nice Lens...Fast and quiet focus with great glass....Let me qualify though-image quality is excellent but the Canon 400mm f5.6 is a bit sharper and it is clearly observable at 100% crop.

No Substitute...So clear....Great glass, great depth of field with the f/1.2....Love this lens, I have wanted it for a long time, it doesn't seem any heavier than the 1.4 either so I was glad about that.
