    I'm a fan of this lens. It's smaller and more compact than the 70-200 L and naturally it's sharper. It focuses fast and has great color. Can you say Bokeh? This lens just melts away the busiest of backgrounds. Just gooey, buttery, beautiful backgrounds. If you can find it within yourself to start moving your feet instead of the focal length of the lens then this will improve your portfolio instantly.

    This lens is an amazing alternative to the 70-200, if not better than! It is SO sharp, so fast, lightweight, and produces truly stunning images. I am so happy about this purchase and would buy it over and over again.
