Review Date: Sep 14, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: So sharp, very nice colors, fast, white
Cons:
Heavy, white, pricedifference for one stop is huge (4.0 to 2.8 for €600)

Bought this lens to replace my 70-200 4 L a year ago, after a long period of being doubtful, to win one stop. And I almost (never) regret it. Only when going on holiday I sometimes struggle with the size and weight and the white color. But when coming back home and viewing the images you´ll forget those ´minor´ things easily. The images are perfect.

A sigma 17-55 2.8 was my standard lens on my 20D but I must admit that the 70-200 2.8 L almost never comes off. It is so much faster, sharper and produces better colors.

Together with the 1.4x converter it suites most of my needs. For some special occasions (Formule 1) I borough a 300 2.8L.

I will never sell this one that's for sure!
