      Using for indoor sports

      At the same time as I upgraded to a 5D Mk III, I purchased this lens. I had previously rented one to use with my previous camera. I've recently started shooting volleyball. Fast motion, poor indoor lighting. This lens lets in enough light that now I am able to tweak shutter speed and ISO to get pretty much the shot I want. "Pretty much" because I'm an amateur and still have a lot to learn. The range of telephoto seems to be pretty close to perfect. From the side of the court, I can get a server completely in the picture (as long as the player is not right next to me) and from the end of the court, I can get reasonably tight into the back row defensive players on the other end (when I can get them lower than the net). Focus seems fast enough, but with a fast sport like vb, I tend to lock on to a particular player for a play and stay with her.

      This is what canon is all about, great build quality, fast af, picture quality, and overall just a great design. I wish I had bought this lense first. My bag now has the 3 basic lenses every bag should have: 24-70mm f2.8L, 70-200mm f2.8L and a 50mm f1.4. I like how well the seals on this lense make the overall feel. Its a little heavy, bring your monopod and don't wimp out. I have never seen a quality lense that was as light as a feather, heavy is good, that means there is real glass inside. Now I just need the 2x extender III. Canon Rocks!!!!!!!!!!

      Clear and Focused with vibrant colors ! Love it ! Don't waste your time buying and trying other lens because of the cost. You get what you pay for with this lens. You defiantley need to use a tripod with this lens because it is not a IS which is fine for me. It's my go to lens for most anything. Takes sharp portraits and landscapes. The only down fall is that it is very heavy, but it does come with a nice case for easy carrying.

      Most versitile for the $$$$$

      I've owned 2 different Canon 70-200mm 2.8 lenses and they have both performed amazingly, the low light shooting is outstanding, the focus speed and quiet USM operation is 2nd to none. This lens is the most versitile I have ever owned/used, well worth the money.

      I've used this lens with my Canon 6D and found it works wonderfully for both portraits and sports the f 2.8 gives a wonderful background blur in portraits also help get those shutter speeds up in those low light conditions we see at most night time school sporting events while helping keep the ISO'S low I would suggest this lens to anyone that wants that little extra edge in there photography business.

      This year I've managed to start making money with my camera. This lens has already proved to be the best investment I've made thus far. The shots I am getting with this lens is really blowing me away. Can't put my camera down. I have already picked up 2 more paying jobs without advertising. These 2 jobs were picked up by referral / word-of-mouth. I'm a very happy customer. Should have made the purchase long ago.

      I bought this to use for various types of photography from landscapes on travels to taking pictures of my kids doing "their" thing. I get great results from both, really nice having the 2.8 so i can really get the light needed from some of the events and not have to slow down shutter, speed up ISO or use flash. I am very happy with my purchase.

      Great Lens, I use it on my 6D. Great build, but of course the only drawback is the weight. Using it handheld will take its toll after a while, but with a monopod, no problem. My second L lens purchased. You won't regret getting this lens.
