I purchased this lens as a first step in upgrading all my glass to L series. It is undoubtedly amazing and now has me addicted. Is it as good in low light as the f4 IS or f2.8? No. But pair it with a body that handles high ISOs well and you're golden. You need to think hard about the benefits of the 70-200mm counterparts and whether or not the benefits match your needs and bank account. It is UNBELIEVABLY sharp throughtout the whole f stop range and zoom range. Solid build, amazing mechanics, quick-to-focus, the list is endless. I would wholly recommend this be a part of any Canon enthusiasts line-up, beginner to professional.

This is an excellent lens for the price. Be aware that the lack of image stabilization and the maximum aperture of f/4.0 makes it only ideal for very well lit places where capturing action is not required.

Great lens, great value

Comments about Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Lens:

I have used Canon lenses for nearly 40 years but I am new to studio portraits. This lens was recommended by a fashion photographer who uses the faster, heavier and more expensive version, which does not fit my budget and is too much to handhold (arthritis). This lens suits me perfectly. It is such a good piece of glass I don't consider it a compromise at all. Very sharp throughout, smooth zoom, and so lightweight. With the studio strobes I don't need the IS and I don't use an aperture under f/4. I am very happy with it.

I've been using this lens for group photos as well as capturing things I didn't have close access to. In the future, I will be using this lens for equestrian events, and I'm excited to test its abilities.

Great lens at a great price

By KB

Comments about Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Lens:

Using this lens with a Canon C100 Mark2. Didn't need IS because it sits on a tripod all the time. The lens is quite a bit smaller and lighter than my 70-200 2.8 IS which is perfect for this application. Super sharp and you can't beat the price for an L lens. What more can I say besides it does a great job.

Comments about Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Lens:

Use this lens with my old Rebel T2i for bird watching, and any long shots. Having a fun time with this lens; not too heavy, and does better in low light than I expected. Kinda miss image stabilization (IS), but that is not worth the extra $1000!
