Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

Review Date: Aug 31, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,575.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: Lens quality is very good (sharp), good contrast, very fast autofocus.
Heavy (even though you know what you buy), buttons on lens get chanced when you hold it sometimes, ERR 01 because of bad contacts or whatever on a 10D (very annoying for a $1700 lens).

I wanted this soo bad. I have it know, paid the enormous price and really love the built and the quality of the lens when shooting. I was somewhat dissapointed by the fact that it's locks up on the 10D sometimes. I also dislike the easy shifting from the IS/AF buttons, they could be harder or on a different place.

Overall.. You just want one and it makes beautiful pictures but with the disadvantages I was a bit dissapointed.. Would I buy it again? Probably yes, there is simply no alternative that good... for Canon that is..
