Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM

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

Pros: Colour,contrast,sharpness from 2.8 upwards,build quality,lightweight and black,accurate fast focussing,takes a TC well.The built in hood of the mark I is an advantage for me.
Not really a negative but IS would be nice.

I posted a review for the 100 f/2 a few months ago and rated it a 10 but it's not up to the standards of the 200 2.8.I guess it's all relative.This lens now forms the benchmark and I doubt anything I can afford will ever surpass it.If I could rate it 11 I would.

Canon EF 100mm f/2 USM

Review Date: Sep 16, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Compact,fast focusing,FTM,fairly cheap,very sharp even at wide apertures.

This lens is quite simply breathtaking.You won't find better at any price (it's well up to L standards except that it's not
weatherproofed),so buy this lens and prepare to be amazed.
