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

ef70-200lisusm
Review Date: Dec 20, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Compact, lightweight, latest IS, image quality, sealed, front element does not rotate, fast AF, not extending
Cons:
Price, hood bulky

Bought this lens as a midrange telephoto - considered also Canon 70-200 f2.8 L IS and Sigam 70-200 f2.8, Canon 70-300 IS and even Sigma 50-150 f2.8.
On balance of long-term value and suitability for hiking trips, the L f4 IS was my choice, despite the over the top price.
I hope it is the right decision (time will show), but my fisrt impressions are very good.
It is light (compared to the other lenses which I have rented for several hiking trips), the IS works very well and image quality is very good.
