Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM

ef200_f2lisu_586x225_1_
Review Date: Feb 27, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $5,400.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Optical and build quality, bokeh, f2.0, color rendition, slient and superb image stablization.
Cons:
Size and bulk, tripod ring should have been removable like the 70-200mm zoom.

One of the best hand holdable lenses that Canon produces by far. I primarily use it to shoot portraits, detailed landscapes and also wildlife photography with Canon 1.4x and 2.0x III extenders. Decided to get this lens over the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 II primary for the quality and character of images it renders at f2.0 and the fact it's better matched with the 2x extender.
