  • Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Fast, Sharp, Colour ,Slick AF, Creamy Bokeh , Build and IS
    None... OK ! If really picky the weight but what do you expect

    STUNNING....simply Stunning on a crop (7D) or a FF (5D3).

    Have used for three years now for sports, events and some portrait work. The go to lens on most occasions has been this beauty.

    Just today I sold my 300 F4 that was bought at the same time for "sharp " extra reach but it hardly saw action. (That was a good buy for some one @ $1050)

    Instead I have used the 70-200mm with both 1.4X & 2X EXT iii's to get extra reach when needed, and even with a 1.4 this beautiful piece of kit beats the 300mm F4 hands down. With a 2x Ext its probably a dead heat except the 70-200 is longer.

    If you are thinking about getting one just take a deep breathe and go for it! You won't be disappointed.

    I still retain my 70-200mm F4 IS USM as a lightweight option when weight matters.... but whilst also brilliant , the F4 is not in the same league when it comes to resolution! Few things are !
