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

Review Date: Jul 13, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,000.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very sharp, very good contrast, IS really works!
Cons:
None

Truly a remarkable lens. Supprisingly sharp, especially considering that the lens contains 20 elements. Even at F4, very sharp. IS really works. Tripod mount is expensive, but a quality product and very useful. Wish that there was a mark on the lens for portrait mode to line up with the tripod mount. Lens is relatively light, in comparison to the F2.8 models in this focal lenght, helpful to me and my back. Highly recommended, truly a remarkable engineering achievement (IMO).

I am very impressed with this lens. It appears to do what it is supposed to do, very well. It is opening up new possiblities for WA photography for me.

Review Date: Nov 23, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $800.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: High quality, well built lens, at an excellent price.
Cons:
Heavy, large.

I cannot compare to a Canon or other lens.
I do recognize quality optics.
I find this a very well built quality lens at a very competitive price point.
For me, perhaps time to invest in more massive tripod system.
Especially at higher mm, this is not a lens to handhold.


 
Canon EF 28mm f/2.8

Review Date: Apr 8, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $200.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Wonderful little gem of a lens. Sharp. Contrast rich. Excellent color rendition. A wonderful lens for digital photography.
Cons:
F2.8

There is a Jewish expression: "A worm in horseraddish thinks that there is nothing sweeter." I am not able to compare this lens to Canon L lenses or other high end lenses. I own a series of Canon consumer prime lenses, and the Sigma 50/2.8 macro. I prefer to use this lenses with my Canon digital 10D. I find the resulting images stunning. I cannot recommend this lenses camera combination enough. I am a prime lens fan. I also believe the fewer pieces of glass, the better. FWIW, this lense confirms in my own mind the wisdom of that philosphy (be it true or not). IMO, this lens is an amazing value!
