Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM

Review Date: Mar 13, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,380.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Good build quality, sharp wide open, nice handling, smooth focus/zoom ring, nice range, good bokeh.
Cons:
Heavy, pricey, white.

Have owned for two months.

Very nice lens, handles very well.

What they say in the other reviews is true, amazing bokeh,
good sharpness wide open, and excellent L-build quality.

But it is pretty heavy though. Prior to purchasing this lens I read alot of reviews saying it was heavy,
but I though, pff, heavy doesn't matter, I'm strong blah blah blah... The weight and size is a bit of an issue.
Its too large to carry around when walking around or something like that, but it does feel very solid in your hands.
It also bothers me that it is white, because I feel like a showoff when I use it for very casual occasions, but
the fact that it is white also gives people confidence when you shoot at more formal occasions such as sport
events, or like myself, dog shows.

All in all, great lens. Recommended as an addition to your normal lens.
I do not recommend as only lens, I have this, a 50mm f/1.8 II along with a 50D body, and I very often
need something with a more general range.

Pros: Excellent colors, insanely beautiful bokeh, fast accurate focus, a pleasure to use.
Cons:
Heavy, pricey.

I had this lens last summer, and I loved it. I have been going through alot of lenses recently, and this one I miss the most. The bokeh is to die for, and the color rendition is beautiful.

Not much to say, except, if you want a prime, that gives you f/1.4, has L-build quality, and is sharp and makes lovely photos. Then go for it. (If you have the money of course.)
