    So far I've only used it for indoor volleyball. I needed something for low light as high school gyms have awful lighting. Combined with the 5D Mark IV, the pictures are so much better! Still get some noise, but I can remove it in Lightroom. The lens is very heavy, but the IS helps immensely when using it handheld without the monopod. I highly recommend it! If you buy it through Best Buy or another Canon certified retailer, I recommend buying the Care Pak warranty from Canon. It includes accident protection, and the 3 yr plan is MUCH cheaper than the Best Buy warranty.

    I bought this using my wife’s account, I’m a motivated and picky beginner, I don’t even make money with this but I’ve always liked photography and I like having good stuff, and with this lens I won’t need to upgrade. I really like the pictures when I compare ones taken with my 50mm 1.8 or y 55-250. It is heavy, yes, but it is well worth it. Silent and fast. Accurate focus. And great for both, portraiture and landscape photography.

    i love the 70-200mm F2.8 sigma that i used with my pentax .. beautiful results sharp photos ,, and this canon 70- 200mm is the same now that i finally bought a canon body .. but i also seen that the MIII was better with subject back lighting results ,, which is why i got this as oppose to the 2 earlier .. but have not tested it for that yet .. and since I did not have the canon M1 or MII ,, it was why I got the 70-200 MIII ..

    Like most L lenses, this glass doesn't come cheap. But version III is worth the upgrade. Ignore what others say about it only being a color change, the lens does have some pretty nice upgrades - air sphere coating (ASC) to reduce flare and ghosting and fluorine coating to make it easier to clean.

    Finally got the 70-200! Having rented it previously on 2 occasions, I already knew it was a great lens. Sharp images and beautiful, creamy bokeh. It does get heavy after awhile. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

    I have rented this lens several times and now I own and its done excellently with excellent resolution, fast focus and exceeds my expectation. It's a bit heavy and I actually like that. Proof of a sturdy product.

    I used the lens for three basketball games and am very happy with the quality of photographs. I look forward to spring and some great shots of Baltimore Orioles. Professional series for sure.

    This is a great lense for all types and ranges of photography. It can shoot close up and far away. It easily does pay for itself with its ability to do so many photos with one lense.
