First released in mid 1999, Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM has immediately become a choice for many prosumers and professionals alike. This lens replaced Canon's ancient EF 100-300mm f/5.6L, which was also very liked in the photo community.

At almost a third of the price of the big brother lens, comparisons are a little unfair. This smaller, lighter, slower version is a very nice lens for the money and produces excellent results.

    Great build quality, Good and consistent performance for price, Silent and quick autofocus

    Chromatic aberration on the borderline, Tripod mount not included in the price

The EF70-200/4L (IS) USM are among Canon's best lenses. If you need a lens that covers this range and can live without an f2.8 aperture, the f4 versions are the ones to get. [Return to Top of Page] Custom Search

Can't beat the price for this kind of lens. Yes, there is no image stabilization but what did we do before the days of is. Tripods are wonderful inventions. I've gotten good photos hand holding.

I'm only 14 and I got this lens for Christmas. I couldn't be happier!!! It's a great lens but not the best aperture range [only going down to 4]. But still a great lens!!!

I purchased this length primarily for indoor sports and art performances.The lens surprised me with its speed to focus, sharpness, and the color accuracy. Considering it lacks the built-in IS, make sure you use some support if you shoot at the maximum focal length.

I was very pleased with the package and the accessory kit. all the contents were in a very good shape. I wish that a tripod adaptor ring to the telephoto lens would have been added to the kit or exchanged with one item. I look forward to buying again form focus camera.

This is the lens if you want a classic images at lower cost. My hands are not used to for taking handheld pictures on this lens so I am using tripod. I generally shoot outdoors so never faced slow focus. Clarity of images are really awesome. Love the color composition of end product.
