High-performance, L-series telephoto zoom lens combining light weight and compactness with an f/4 maximum aperture. Inner focusing and the ring USM enable quick and quiet autofocusing. A circular polarising filter can be attached and used without difficulty as the front lens element does not rotate during focusing. The tripod collar (sold separately product number 1018072) is the same as utilised with the EF 300mm f/4L USM. Includes Canon ET-74 lens hood. More
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.
A maximum aperture of f/4 is available at all focal-length settings, ensuring shutter speeds do not change as the lens is zoomed. A non-rotating front element simplifies the use of filters, such as polarisers and grads.
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.
The lens comes supplied with a lens hood and a soft case.

Bought to replace an old EF 70-210mm f3.5-4.5 USM that developed creep, for use with the EOS 7D, it has not disappointed. Took some getting used to as it is longer and slightly heavier than expected. The balance is not as good as I would have hoped. While I would have liked the f2.8 I could not justify the expense, and have not missed the extra stop thus far. It is extremely well made and very sturdy. The optical quality is first class giving good colour rendition across the whole range. Images are also sharp, especially if you can use f7.1+. So far I have not found the need for IS, but it might be useful during the winter months. The colour of the lens is a little disappointing as I still fail to see why it is cream - black is much less intrusive (probably harking back to my professional days when I did not need to be seen!). Think I may have to invest in the covers that are available, though they are relatively expensive. Still, it is a good lens and it has produced some really good results in the time that I have been using it, especially in good lighting conditions. The attached images have been cropped and had some colour correction, as well as being very heavily compressed - but not sharpened. They also started life as "jpeg", not RAW as they were experimental at that stage with a new lens. Quite satisfying, as the rig was at least a quarter of a mile away!

Great vaule for money

This is a great lens without a doubt. Very well built, sharp picture and 70-200mm is a very useful focal length. Only down side is the f4 aperture. In doors without an external flash it is tricky to use. They obviously make an f2.8 which in hindsight I wish I had spent the extra cash. But for the money you wont be disappointed and for outside daytime photography you will get some awesome results.

Fantastic quality and great value
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Comments about Canon EF 70-200mm f4 L USM Lens:
Great value, general purpose short tele-zoom. Usual L Series build and image quality yet quite light and compact. Tack sharp across the aperture range including wide open. A pleasure to use with beautifully weighted zoom and focussing rings. Focussing is fast and accurate on my 50D. No IS but doesn't really need it for what I mainly shoot (sport, wildlife and action). Just have to watch the shutter speed on dull days. I can't find anything to fault except the case is a bit rubbish and the (effective) lens hood is a bit big! Love it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Purchased this lens as a cheap way into Canon L series glass - and I was not disappointed. Fantastic optics and very clear photos. Use this lens a lot for portraits of family but have also got great results with landscapes and airshows.Overall a great lens that I cannot fault in any way, at a great price - go and buy one and find out!

A very good medium zoom lens
This is a well built lens and also quite light. It produces very sharp results throughout the zoom range and from wide open to fully closed. Also the length stays the same between 70mm and 200mm. I did find the autofocus a little noiser then my other lenses, but not intrusively so.I was surprised at the low price for an 'L' lens. It made me think that a Mk 2 version is imminent. But value for money it is excellent. I haven't missed IS at all yet. Very happy.

Great performance in a lightweight zoom
About Me Semi-Professional
This lens is much lighter than its f2.8 brothers, and so tends to be taken much more often. Haven't had long, but it seems to be a very solid and consistent performer. Very happy with it.
