"Used for night football and soccer so far. Will also use for basketball and indoor cutting shows."

"This is the best lens Canon makes. It focuses even faster than the 300mm f/2.8. This lens has made some of the best photos I have ever taken. Great colors, contrast and focus speed. "

"Lens cover and hood are a bit cumbersome."
