Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

ef70_200_4_1_
Review Date: Sep 12, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $575.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharpness, color, cost
Cons:
mine backfocused, OK after calibration

This is an excellent lens at an affordable price. I have used mine primarily for larger wildlife and kids sports, and I have been very pleased with the color rendition and especially the sharpness from this lens. The bokeh is also very pleasing, and gives sufficient subject isolation at f/4.

My only nit is that it did backfocus slightly as shipped from Canon (well, B&H). I sent it in for calibration (warranty service), and it came back very nicely done. For this I knock it a point on the overall ratings, but it is quickly becoming a go-to lens for me.
