Simply Awesome

By

from Michigan

Been using the f4 version for about ten years, and after renting the f2.8 for an event fell in love with it. Sharp , great bokeh and procuces great images. Of course Adorama is the place to purchase all your photographic needs.

GREAT lens, HORRIBLE customer service!

By

from Phx, Az  -  Tech Savvy

The lens is fantastic, super clean, fast, and spot on. BUT, when I ordered the lens it came without the lens filter kit that was in the description. I called and Adorama said it was on back order for a few weeks and that they notified me, which I never got. So I asked if I got order a different filter kit and I would pay the difference, but their supervisors wouldn't do it. I called back twice before I found a supervisor that would let me pay the difference, except, instead of paying the $21 difference they made me pay $35 difference. It sucks that they will sacrifice thousands of dollars in future purchases for $14. I will never purchase from them again. Plus, I've spread the word to my photography friends and co-workers. The lens is great, the customer service SUCKS!

Newer is Better

By

from New York City

I was looking through my desk for something unrelated and came upon the warranty card for my original version of this lens and was kinda shocked to be reminded I had purchased it in 1999. While nominally the "same" lens, I thought it might be wise to cash in those chips and replace it, and I did. I suppose it's possible I'm rationalizing the expense, but I really do see a difference. This lens, designed and manufactured in the digital age, is noticeably sharper than the earlier version. In fact, it's razor sharp, and on the second day of using it I nailed a cover shot for the magazine I was working for. You could see the moisture in the subjects' eyes. Whether you are upgrading as I did, or considering a purchase for the first time, this particular lens is often referred to as "legendary". It lives up to the description.

Great Lens. Very pleased I bought it.

I am a newbie to the DSLR camera world. This lens is everything that my experienced photography friends claimed it would be!

All that and a bag of chips

By

from New Orleans , la.  -  Photo Professional

Canon has bossed it again. I'm a full time wedding , commercial and portrait photographer. The 70-200 2.8L 2 is a beast. The improved IS and optics are steller. The DOF on this lens is beautiful. All other lenses in this category pale in comparison. If your looking to change your game- this is the next step.

best zoom len ever

By

from Simi Valley, CA  -  Parent

I'm an amateur photographer using this len for family portrait and kids' school activities. The focus is so fast and the image is so sharp, although I don't have the stable arms. Thanks to the 4 stops IS, it helps me create many sharp images. The only thing I don't like about this len is the tripod ring. It gets in the way when mounted on the tripod. It kinds of awkward for me to use the zoom ring when mounting on the tripod. Other than that it is awesome len. Infact I mount it on my 5d2 ever since I received it from adorama. I don't have the previous version so I can't compare the performance between the two versions.

Now I know why this is called a portrait lens

By

from Las Vegas, NV

Wow, just wow! I've been shooting the 70-200 mm lens now for about 2 weeks. The one thing that really stands out is how effortless it is to get a beautiful rich bokeh when shooting. What sets it apart from all my other red ring lenses is the field of depth is truly preserved even as the background is blurred out. The 70-200mm lens really is a very different lens and now I can see why it's a go to choice for portrait photography.

Blown Away! - Best Zoom I've Ever Used

By

from Dallas, TX  -  Tech Savvy

I only wish I'd gotten it sooner! I've owned this gem for about a month and it's far-exceeded my expectations. The sharpness, color, contrast and bokeh are stunning. (a couple of examples attached) The images from this lens look more like what I'd expect from a prime lens. This lens has replaced my 24-105L as my primary walk-around lens. On a Full-Frame body I don't mind giving up some wider shots in exchange for the additional zoom and crisp images this lens gives me. Pair it up with a crop sensor and you've got an even more powerful zoom but you may find yourself having to continually back up to get the photo you want. This lens + a 5dMKIII with battery grip starts to get pretty heavy. Think about getting a good monopod to help out with that. Note that the tripod/monopod mounts to an included bracket on the lens barrel to reduce strain on the camera. Something to keep in mind if you've got multiple bodies/lenses. The weight may also be an issue for international flights originating outside the US, on which some airlines restrict the weight of your carry-ons. This lens does attract more attention when out shooting so don't expect to not be noticed if that's a concern. I have not used the earlier generation of this lens or the F4 version so I can't make direct comparisons to those models.

Better than expected, can't think why I didn't get it sooner.

GEORGE V  Thomas P, Your question needs to be referred to Adorama. Does the mail-n rebate also applies to Canadian resident? Yep, this is a policy question that only Adorama can and should answer.
