It is tack sharp, lightweight. I use for some landscapes, some portraits and some action and/or wildlife shooting.
Pleasantly surprise how sharp it really is...
great lens, IS works extremely well, images very sharp
Absolutely no regrets in purchasing a used EF 70-200 from Adorama! The lens itself is amazing although the weight (while less than the f/2.8)takes some getting used to. Easy to use with fast focus!
Semi professional photography, weddings, party's sports events. LIghter than expected, ease of use, great quality results.
This lens is incredible in every way - super sharp, great DOF, and much smaller and lighter than its f2.8 counterparts. However, in the end it could not compete with the speed and new optics of the f2.8 ver2, so I returned it and made the upgrade. But for the money and if you're not planning to show in any low light, this lens is a great value and makes beautiful images.
Love using this lens for video and photography work. The image stabilization is absolutely incredible when shooting video.
I am a semi pro photographer that made the switch from another brand 70-200 2.8 lens to the Canon 70-200 4.0 lens. I am in love , the new one is half the weight and size, clarity unbelievable, ease of use; put on camera and go. output is by far superior to the major competition and price point is the same. I love the ability to hand hold no monopod needed in most cases. I am so thrilled I traded my other "big Lens" and appreciate the support of the Adorama Team when selecting a replacement.
Sports without a flash and sweet 16 parties and milestone birthday parties
I use it for events and home and everything else.
