Review Date: Dec 3, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $620.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: quality of the glass, size& weight, aperture
Cons:
none

all i can say is wow! the quality of the images taken with this lens blows me away! i had purchased a 70-200 2.8L and found it too heavy and large for causal shooting outings...took it back and got the 200 and have been smiling ever since.

Canon EOS 20D

Pros: fast autofocus, expanded wb options, build, joystick , fast start-up, size resolution, brightness of view finder, added filter effects in the parameter menu
Cons:
95% viewfinder coverage, cf door, kit battery charger not compatible with all batteries that can power the camera(as in 511's used in 10d) no 3 degree or narrower spot meter

I've had the camera for nearly two weeks now and it continues to amaze me. i loved/love my 10d, but with this camera i think i've died and gone to heaven! I have had no lock-up problems. I"ve been shooting daily, indoors and out around NY and the image quality is astounding. i am not getting the blown highlights that i got so frequently with the 10d.
while the camera is similar to the 10d and feels familiar, i found it necessary to spend some time going through the manual to really understand this little gem, particularly the auto focusing system, the expanded parameters and the color balancing options

. i initially thought i had a focusing issue, but once i got a handle on the autofocus points, what i thought might be focusing issues disappeared. this camera is a winner!
