Pros: Wonderfully sharp, Incredible contrast, built like a "Brick Sh_t House"
Cons:
none

I just bought this lens after many months of thought and research.. It was between this lens, the 70-200mm 2.8L IS and the Sigma 70-200mm 2.8. These other two lenses seem to have softness problems at 2.8 (according to FM Forum comments and some reviews I read on other sites). I can tell you that this lens is worth every penny. I love it ! It is tack sharp and the contrast is awesome. It is heavy, so it takes some strength to lug it around for an extended period of time. Also, get used to comments while you are out like "that's a big a_s lens !" and "Look at that guys camera !". It draws attention, which for me is fun. Like my brother, (who is also into photography), said to me once "sure the Sigma is a nice lens for the money, but it's not an L lens and it's the wrong color" Spend a few hundred more now, and get the best if you have the option to do so.......Cheers and happy shooting !
