Review Date: Apr 7, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,400.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: constant f/2.8, clear and sharp optics. great walk around lens.
Cons:
heavy

Used it for about a month now, I love this lens as a walk around lens a tad heavy, but its worth the effort. Great crisps and sharp optics. Love the constant f/2.8.

If you are new to the world of (D)SLR and is looking for lenses to start with and can ***afford*** it, I would recommend this lens and also the 70-200 f/2.8 IS, because you will end up saving more money than if you try to start up cheap and upgrade as you progress along. These lens are for keeps!

Regards,
Ferdinand.

Pros: Constant f/2.8, clear and sharp optics. Good range. High quality build. Works well with the Canon 2X EF teleconvertor.
Cons:
Heavy.

Used it for a month so far, awesome lens. Bought it together with the 2X TC. Use it with the 2X TC when I go shooting wildlife, and without the 2X TC when shooting sporting events when I get to shoot from the sideline. Very very versatile lens. No regrets getting this lens. The IS has helped a lot by giving me stability and the freedom to be on the move all the time and not worry about lugging a tripod or monopod around.

Like they say pictures are worth a thousand words, http://photos.thefongfamily.com all the bird shots are taken with this lens with the 2x TC on.
