Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

ef70_200_4_1_
Review Date: Aug 7, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very sharp results, almost silent focusing, works well on my 20d, not too heavy.
Cons:
none

So far i have used this lense for scenery shots of mountains and also some wildlife. i am now considering getting a 2X teleconverter but have read many bad reviews about it.

The focusing is teh most admiring thing i found about it with its usm being so quick and silent that the butterfly does not have a chance to fly away before i get a picture of it.

Although not vital if tehre was a image stabilised version of this lens tehn i may be more interested in that but i normally shoot in bright light so i am using shutter speeds of about 1/2000th and normally stick to f4

compared to my 18-55mm the standard lens is put to shame

i recomend this lens is brought used because it does not often suffer from wear because of its build quality, i brought mine used from fordes and i cannot find any signs of use.
