    Nice budget "L" lens

    Posted

    This is a very nice lens if you want an entry into Canon "L" (Luxury) series. You get the great "L" glass and build for less price. This is great for long shots and it keeps it's nice clarity all through it's range. It has *outstanding* bokeh that leaves you with some beautiful shots, especially portraits and floral shots...can't say enough about the bokeh. Has a nice build quality and single barrel means the movement is inside and less places for dust to enter. Comes with the lens hood and soft case to keep it in when not mounted. The color and contrast is wonderful. The downsides that I found...the lens cap is VERY difficult, if not impossible to remove without first removing the hood. While it does come with the hood and soft case, it does not come with the tripod mounting collar which isn't very cheap when you have to buy it. It's light color stands out like a sore thumb and I would be careful if out wandering around the back allies at night to get some night shots. All in All...for the price this is a real bargain for a Canon "Luxury" lens! I love the great bokeh, just the right amount of color saturation and excellent contrast. It will be great for a lot of photography but it still won't be on my camera nearly as often as my shorter, lighter, wider "walk around" lens (Canon 28-135 IS lens). For the price and the glass...well worth the price.

    Amazing Sport Lens

    Posted

    I originally bought this Lens for sports photography and was planning to mainly use this for Motocross and Supercross. I was a little worried about the f4, being you would have to have good lighting for the pictures to turn out right, but after I got this lens I was amazed how great the pictures came out..even in low light! As far as not having IS, you don't need it with sports and most of the photography you plan to shoot. I also took portrait photos, and they turned out amazing as well!! In other words, the Canon L series lens compared to the regular Canon lens just pops! The colors and everything look more realistic and vibrant. The body I use is a Canon t3i and this is a pefect matching lens for the zoom range 70-200. I must admit, I probably will NEVER buy another lens unless it's an L lens!

    Great for walk-around and/or first L series

    If you have never owned an L series lens before, this is the one to start with. You'll be amazed at how much your photos instantly improve. Since it is much lighter than its IS version, this lens makes for a better walk-around. I use it on a 6D so low light is no problem (learn how to set and use K value). Next to my 50mm, this is by far my favorite lens. I am too old to lug around a 3 pound lens. I have 2 and next to never use them unless I know I will be sitting or using a tripod. This lens does not come with tripod mount ring as the IS versions do. They are optional. Due to the length of the lens, when I use a tripod, I use a ring. If you buy one, get Canon and not an off brand, $145 may sound like a lot, but they are made to last and won't accidently pop open.

    GREAT LENSE

    Posted
    DUGGY

    This is a great lense.The Tamrons I tried did'nt even come close.The Canon 70-300 F3.5-5.6 IS USM, the Canon 100mm macro,and the Canon 28-135mm that came with my new Canon 40D, do come close, but do not have the awesome focus or clearness, as this lense,I can feel the awesome quality,and for the price it can't be beat. I find I do not absolutely need image stabilization,for with the lense I have or the others I purchased with it,I find I can turn it off and still get the same exact image,I will probably have to use a tri pod if I were in a really dark situation,but I have never encountered a situation where I need one because of blurryness do to camera shake. Thanks Best Buy for carrying such awesome Canon lenses,I now want to save money for other Canon L series lenses Best Buy offers. Thanks for the great no hassle exchange and or return policy.THE BEST!

    Fast focus great quality

    Got this lens years ago paired with my old rebel. I really like it and shop for a canon L lens and see the price, this will be near the top of the list. I wanted a constant apature, fast focus, not plastic telephoto lens with with internal focus and the 70-200 is what i got. I would love to have one of the 2.8 is versions but thats like tripple the price. It is alot heavier than the plastic kit lenses but worth it. In fact I put a wide angle kit lens on and i hate it because every time i use a polorizer on it i have to always adjust it for every shot and wait for it to focus. The 70-200 is on my now 70d that i love 95% of the time.

    All you would expect from an L

    I have only had this a lens a few weeks now, but I am just blown away by the clarity and color saturation of my photos. The build quality is very solid. Since the zoom mechanism is inside the lens, dust and moisture are less of a concern. The only gripes I have is how expensive the tripod mounting rings are and the fact that the lens does not come with one. It is a MUST-HAVE for this lens. I'm sure they exclude it just to make the price that much more attractive(and let's fact it, it is!), but COME ON, CANON!! The lens itself is truly a gem. I look forward to many years of excellent service from this lens.

    I had purchased this lens earlier in the year for a road trip out west. To be honest, I'm usually a Nikon user but I had wanted to try a Canon and purchased the camera then this lens. The Lens is very fast in focusing and the pics are very sharp, crystal clear and the colors were simply amazing. I am very happy with this lens purchase and very happy I gave it a try. (keep in mind the pic used was reduced in size so quality may be effected, only used as example)

    High quality, affordable L glass

    I read a number of reviews here before deciding to purchase this lens. Everything others have said about it are true. Its construction and image quality are top notch. I like that it doesn't extend and the front element doesn't rotate. On the downside, it's also true what others said about needing A LOT of light. I took it to the beach to photograph my son SUPing and I noticed that as the sun went down, so did the quality of my pics. A final word - shooting without IS is much more difficult than I imagined. Make sure your hands are stead enough for the task and/or that you can use a tri/mono-pod in your shooting situation.
