reviewswhat are people saying

"This lens is as good as Canon says it is. It is tact sharp and a great value. It is also much lighter than the 70-200mm f/2.8"

bhphotovideo.com

"An absolutely terrific lens and a great asset to better image making; the image stabilization allows for fluid movement and freedom from the tripod and still provides crisp images in difficult lighting situations."

bhphotovideo.com

"What I dislike is that it looks somewhat small on my 7D, i expected it to be larger (my reference was the 2.8) and the extra attention that I mentioned before."
