Canon EF 200mm f/1.8L USM

ef200mmf_18l_1_
Review Date: Dec 17, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Heavenly optics, f/1.8 is razorsharp and superbright. Made from stone. Some much fun filming with my 5DII.
Cons:
heavy, cant get repaired or serviced anymore which pisses me off. relatively cheap

This lens is so good. Get a good tripod and start filming. The price on the second hand market is getting really good. Sometimes I see one passing by for 1500 EUR. For this kind of optics it is really superb price/quality.

Although what is really annoying is that canon wont repair it. This is so disappointing. Nikon repairs all there lenses.

Review Date: Dec 17, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Optical quality is excellent, superb IS. Great build quality
Cons:
hefty price, big and white

de fluorite element really makes it match the primes. Fantastic optical quality for a zoomlens. So much better then de 70-200 mark I.

 
Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM

Review Date: Dec 17, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: focal length range (on 1.6x), push pull zooming, excellent handholdable
Cons:
first generation IS, no wheather sealing, not excellent optics

Excellent lens for walking around and shoot some wildlife on 1.6x crop camera. I love it on my 7D where it is equivalent to an 160-640mm IS. Very easily handholdable. IS helps but to bad it isnt 4 stops.

I would only replace it if canon announces a fixed 400mm f/5.6L 4 stops IS.
