Canon 70-200mm EF USM Lens

 

This lens is fantastic. An L-series lens for approximately half the price of others in the series, with almost no loss in performance. Great for wildlife photography, as it focuses almost instantly and accurately.

Fast and quiet focus. Crisp photos at 200mm. Manual focus override

For the price, none

I've owned this lens for over 6 months now and this is by far one of my most favorite telephoto lenses. Image quality is superb, lens build quality is superb, handling is superb. It's one of the best lenses among Canon's lenses and considering its...

This lens has been an absolute pleasure on my Canon Rebel XT (350D) body. I find that I use it for wildlife and sports more than anything, as the 1.6x crop on my 350D makes the short end of this lens pretty long for most other shooting that I do.If...

Great color and sharpness, USM, lightweight compared to the f/2.8L, lens hood is included

Tripod mount is expensive if you need it

For less than $600, this is the best Canon telephoto zoom lens on the market. Picture quality is almost as good as primes. Autofocus is extremely fast and quiet.I have both this lens and its bigger brother 70-200mm F2.8 IS. I took some test shots on...

Light weight, wonderful color, extremely sharp, excellent build quality

For the price, none

I have been using this lens for almost 3 months, it the the best quality tele lens in my set right now.I compared this lens to the EF 75-300 IS, this lens is way better wide open across the zoom range.I needed to stop down the 75-300 2 stops to get...

L quality - Excellent sharpness, contrast and color. Good AF speed, build quality. Internal focus

Canon 70-200mm EF USM Lens

 

I was going to buy the Canon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM Lens, but after reading the reviews on that lens and the 70-200mm f/4.0L USM I decided to buy the latter. The lens build and optical quality are outstanding. You could upgrade to the f/2.8mm IS...

Great optical quality, relatively light, solidly built

Tripod adapter sold separately, no IS (Image Stabilization)

This lens has great clarity at all focal lengths. I use it on my Digital Rebel and consider myself a "casual" photographer. I've used the Canon 70-200mm f/4 mostly for outdoor wildlife shooting thus far. It's proven fast enough to capture great...

I purchased this lens for my Canon Rebel XT. Together, they deliver great pictures. I couldn't be more satisfied with the picture quality. This is probably the most inexpensive L lens from Canon. With the high quality of this lens, it is worth every...

Top quality at a reasonable price. I use this with a Canon D60 EOS Digital camera and results are professional in quality. Would be nice to have image stabilization and a 2.8 vs a 4 but these come at a high cost. If you can live with F4 then this is...

From the first photo I took with this lens, I was hooked! Amazing clarity compared to Tamron zoom lens I purchased previously. I will be using this lens for wildlife, marine and landscapes mostly. I use the lens on my Canon Rebel XSi and love it after...

Crisp sharpness and amazing color with this lens. Nice lens hood and case are included

Tripod mount ring not included (Canon brand is expensive to purchase)
