    Highest Rated Consumer Review by the Community

  • Professional Performance at an Affordable Price.

    Jul 12, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Superior fluorite element, low weight, f4 constant aperture, solid construction, excellent price.
    Cons: Lens collar not included, no image stabilization, dirty white color.

    Summary: My Buying Decision: After the unfortunate incident involving my late EF 75-300mm lens, a heavy aluminum wall sculpture and my neurotic kitten, I was in the market for a new telephoto zoom lens. If you buy any Canon digital SLR camera (or ... read more

  • Professional grade lens at an affordable price

    Aug 4, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Image quality is sharp, vivid colors, light for 70-200, solid build, fast & quiet focus
    Cons: Price (but worth it)

    Summary: I currently shoot with Canon 20D (x1.6 crop factor) and have been using the 18-55mm kit lens & the 50mm f1.8 mkII lens (much sharper then the kit). I've rented few lenses including the 70-200 f2.8 L IS (nice but quite heavy) and the more I used it, ... read more

  • This Big White Bazooka Won My Heart (And My Eyes!)

    May 18, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sharp, Sharper, Sharpest... What it lacks in speed is more than compensated in image quality.
    Cons: After the soreness in the back pocket healed, NONE.

    Summary: Ok, what can I say? It isn’t cheap, but especially if you shoot outdoors, this is the ultimate EOS tele zoom lens for under a kilo-buck. (In fact, it was actually under $700.00 US) In the world of Canon EOS EF lenses, there are three ... read more

  • I've got "L" Fever

    Sep 14, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good walk around lens, quiet and fast focusing, good price new, sharp images, great bokeh.
    Cons: No tripod collar(expenssive to buy), not ideal for indoor or low light.

    Summary: Well after owning a Sigma 70-300mm APO Macro DG and getting this lens, it’s definitely a different league. I do think that the Sigma lens is a great all around consumer lens for the price, but it just wasn’t cutting it for me. I quickly ... read more

  • Best Medium Telephoto for EOS

    Jul 20, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Constant aperture, not as big as 2.8 lens, "L" quality
    Cons: White color draws attention, on DSLR's it starts kind of long at 112mm

    Summary: Note: As of today (4/15/2010) this review is showing the picture of the Canon lens reviewed here but the description incorrectly states Sigma.You know the problem with camera lenses? They're never quite long enough, just when you ... read more

  • Excellent image quality, but with 1 problem...focusing

    Feb 9, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Exceedingly sharp, great color/contrast, light, smooth operating, internal focus, price
    Cons: Many seem to have autofocus inaccuracy issues (discussed in review)

    Summary: I've been a professional photographer for around 30 years and have bounced between Nikon and Canon systems over that time with Leica thrown in at one point. But overall I've been predominantly a Nikon user. I used to work for an optical company and did ... read more

  • A great lens choice for any advanced/professional photographer…

    Dec 5, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light weight for its zoom ratio and quality; one of the best!
    Cons: White, black, white, black…looks like a zebra!

    Summary: Over a thirty year period of shooting professionally (glamour and fashion), of all the lenses that I owned (plenty), two lenses were my real money makers. Depending on the brand of equipment that I was using at the time they were the 300mm F2.8 (or 280mm ... read more

  • Pro Quality & Results

    Nov 27, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Canon L glass. Very Sharp Results. Weight and price.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: I changed from Nikon to Canon and I was shooting all pro glass fixed aperature zooms before the change. When I needed to purchase a telephoto I did'nt want a large bulky lens. The 70-200f/4L fit my need. The 70-200 f/4L is a great ... read more

  • Great all-purpose telephoto zoom

    Feb 23, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Light, superlative "L" image quality at a very low price
    Cons: f/4 aperture can be limiting for sports/action/wildlife photography and makes teleconverter use impractical.

    Summary: This lens is a member of Canon's "L" (as in Luxury) series of professional lenses recognizable by the red ring on the lens front. It is very compact thanks to the use of a calcium fluoride front element, a technology used in high-end ... read more

    Pros: Great bokeh, very sharp contrast & color. Fast and accurate AF with silent USM.
    Cons: The lens hood kinda ugly but I got 67mm flower hood from ebay.Love it!

    Summary: I like this Canon white color body, sometimes made people look back and you felt great of it. People noticed that you are serious with photography. And this lens is not heavy to carry around the neck for long time. I compared this lens w/ 17-85 f/3-5.6 ... read more

  • Don't Bother with IS or 2.8 Buy This Lens

    Rated Show
    Pros: Razor sharp, fast focus, solid, well built
    Cons: None

    Summary: If you own a Digital SLR then this is a lens you should buy. For LESS money than some EF-S plastic lenses you get this rock solid, razor sharp, excellent product. I shoot at very fast speed at F4.5 with this lens and the images are razor sharp. No need ... read more

  • Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM Lens

    Pros: Great lens, the absolute bargain lens in Canon's L series range
    Cons: For the price NONE, if you want f/2.8 then spend twice as much

    Summary: 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 ... read more

  • Good value but I would invest in the 2.8 version.

    Jul 13, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Light weight, Image Quality, Constant f/4
    Cons: f/4 and not f/2.8, no IS (image stabilization)

    Summary: The L series lenses rock. I absolutely won't go back to the regular EF lenses, especially when shooting in RAW format above 8 Mega Pixel. The range of this lens is key. It's a telephoto you must have in your bag. The constant f/4 is nice but I would ... read more

  • Fantastic Lens for the money!

    Pros: Nice 'feel' -Zoom ring offers fast zoom with little effort -Very sharp images throughout range
    Cons: Color (looks horribly out of place on the 300D)

    Summary: I am an aviation photography enthusiast and had been using the Canon Zoom Telephoto EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 III Autofocus lens for a little over a year. Though this lens was an inexpensive foray into a fairly powerful zoom, its autofocus was lacking in ... read more
