Given its performance/quality/price characteristics, Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM lens can be considered a decent value among fixed focal telephoto lenses. The lens does not seem to have any major weaknesses and while it does not show the highest overall performance (in MTF50 terms) is certainly no...

This is my first "L" lens and I am now a believer that the additional cost is worth it. Don't buy into the sales pitches or reviews telling you that other glass "for half the price" is "L" quality - it's not. I bought them and have never been truly impressed.

Haven't used the 70-200 personally, but don't feel that it will be better than this lens. Haven't seen a zoom that was better than a prime anyway. Great detail, color,andcontrast.

I bought this as a replacement for my 70-200mm zoom. I used to have a 200mm f2 in the old days and was concerned that I would be disappointed with this lens. Oh, no, it is brilliant and I love it. So crisp and works so well with the extenders.

I have used this lens extensively for candid downtown shots and I'm amazed at the quality of the images. Itæ's black and rather average-looking, so nobody cares where I pioint it. Have taken pictures at 50+ metres that I've kept! Took some of my nephew from 40 metres out.

    Sharp, solid, cheap (It's a great L-lens) and black

    Nope, not really

Lack of versatility, difficult to frame the subject especially in watching sports. What's the use of good optic if you're nail down in 200mm. I would spend money for either Sigma 70-200mm or Canon 70-200mm for better framing subjects. Zoom lens nowadays has better improvement.

  • +

    Good for steady shot.

  • -

    No zooming, too expensive with less use. Not usable everyday lens.

This lens is amazing for the price. It is sharp in the center and across much of the frame wide open, but one stop down it becomes tack sharp. AF is excellent in both one-shot and servo tracking modes. Takes the 1.4X extender extremely well - negligible hit in IQ and AF performance.

  • +

    Very fast and accurate AF. Tack sharp. Excellent contrast and colors. Smaller/lighter than the great whites and much more discreet. Very smooth background blur at wide apertures.

  • -

    None - especially at this price.

Fast lens and very sharp. This is a gem in the Canon line at the prices it can be had for. This lens works great for shooting baseball and football games for children. Line up on first base and you can capture great images of runners coming to first and second base stealing/sliding action.

  • +

    Fast, inexpensive, sharp.

    None I can find!
