Pros: Greatest lens if I ever owned in the EOS-system. Wunderful colours and sharpness. Stabilizer works perfect. Less heavy than the old 1.8/200 L.
Cons:
Again no practical cover for the front lens. Canon should work on this for all long telephoto lenses.

Got the 1.8/200 before and sold it when the new one was announced. After all the best thing I could do. The AF is even better, the colours are very great ... and most of all: Because of the (less) weight no it's THE lens in my bag. I even take it to assignments where I never thought to bringt such a "monster".
At soccer matches mostly my 70-200 stays in the bag now - the difference is to big ;-).
The best combination seems to be on a 1Ds MkIII or another fullframe camera. With a 1.4x converter it "replaces" a 2.8/300.
If you have the money go out and get this lens!
