Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM

ef300mmf_4_1_
Review Date: Feb 3, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $700.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Price (especially when bought 2nd hand), great performance, everything I had expected after reading the reviews here.
Cons:
if you twisted my arm, then I might say what's all that clonking about when the IS is on, but it works fine so who cares....

I bought my copy second hand and I've not been disappointed, there is nothing I can say that hasn't already been said. So if you still need some help here's some examples of it in use.....

Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

ef17-40_4l_1_
Review Date: Dec 30, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $650.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Size, Weight & Build Quality
Cons:
low light focus sometimes slow (hunts)

I shoot exclusively with film bodies, so with no crop factor this lens is very wide and can produce some very interesting perspectives.

Here are some samples images created with this lens:

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

ef70_200_4_1_
Review Date: Nov 6, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $580.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Great value - the bargain lens in the L series range, superb lens, always very pleased with the results.
Cons:
For the price - NONE, if you want f/2.8 then pay twice as much

This is a great lens, it was the first Canon L lens I purchased and I have absolutely no regrets. This lens focuses well in low light, has good bokeh, is great for portraits and always produces beautiful results. For some examples of what this lens is capable of please review these galleries, the majority where shot with this lens:
