Consumer review (



One of the greatest lens I've ever used. I had the f/1,8 FD version, which was already stunning, but this new model is even better, especially wide open. And the stabilizer is a great addition. To improve this lens, I can only think about a shorter...

worth the $ and the weight


I thought long and hard before purchasing this lens over one year ago. Two things were worrying me...the weight and the cost. I need not have worried. There is no doubt that this lens will become the one to go to when the very best in quality is the...

amazing lens


Aquired this lens earlier this week WOW.! The auto focus speed is simply amazing, with both the 5D MKII and the new 7D. The optics are the best to date of anything that I've used - I believe it's better than the current Canon 300 F/2.8 and the 500 F/4....

Best Portrait Lens!


maybe sports as well. Just insanely fast, brilliant bokeh and the best color imaginable. A little heavy. But I need the workout. Sharpness beyond question. This is THE lens for shooting anything moving fast or wanting to pull something off its...
