Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

Review Date: Jun 4, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: light to carry, sharp, good colour

I agonized over which zoom lens to buy between the 100-300 is and the 70-200 f4 was my final choice after trying it out on my 30D in the shop. I wanted the 70-200 f.28 is but it was a tad heavy for my hand as a carry around. I don't regret the choice while IS would have been good to have I am finding I can hold the camera steady enough without it. I went for the 1.4 extender because the 2x doesn't have auto focus ability and for wildlife I want fast shooting.

For me its a good choice and I am very pleased with the sharp shots and colour the weight is good enough to carry around and its built very sturdy.

I highly recommend this lens and I wanted to thank everyone who has posted previously it really did help me in my decision.
