Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM

Review Date: Oct 20, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Image quality, size, weight, consistency, reliability, ease of use

In 25 years of photography, this is the finest lens I have owned to date. It is exceptional and, for what it gives me, I don't regard it as being overpriced.

I upgraded from the non-IS version purely for the benefit of IS, not expecting a great improvement in image quality, but whatever Canon has done with the lens coatings, or such, the improvement in the areas of contrast, colour and sharpness are quite noticeable.

I can carry this lens around with me all day, along with a 1.6x crop body and a 17-40mm and not suffer any backache as I do if I also take along my 300mm F4 L IS.

The 17-40mm and the 70-200mm F4 L IS are sufficient for almost all my needs. If I think I might need a little more reach I use the Canon Extender 1.4x II which is light and works well with the 70-200 although focusing with this combination on my 10D isn't as consistent compared to using the lens without the converter.
