I will write 2 reviews here.

Review 1: Buy this lens.

Review 2: This lens is my first L and I decided upon it after reading a lot of reviews on the web. I have to concur with everything I read which basically says this lens is the dogs danglies.

On a crop sensor you will get a focal length range of 112 to 320mm. So it's usable for portrait work at the bottom end no problem and has a hefty 320mm reach at the tele end.

The lens has IS which comes in two modes. The IS kicks in when you press the shutter release half way and makes hardly any noise. Mode 1 will attempt to correct vertical and horizontal hand shake and mode 2 is specially set up to correct vertical motion only and is suited to panning shots - motorsports come to mind. It's a fantastic system. This lens makes the seemingly impossible possible such as hand held shots at full zoom at 1/80th of a second - and that's me with not much practice. If you're naturally steady handed I bet you could get ridiculously slow shutter speeds if you required them and still get sharp images. You can (and should) turn the system off for tripod shots.

The other main feature of the lens is a focus limiter switch which stops the lens attempting to focus closer than 3m if you know you're not going to need to focus that close thus speeding up AF times. AF speed is very very quick - just press the shutter release half way down and all things being equal the focus simply snaps to in an instant.

The build of lens is outstanding. It just feels solid and the focus and zoom rings are smooth and easy.

The lens is internal focusing and zooming so it doesn't change length but it is long already and with the hood it's a bit of a handful. You won't go unnoticed with this lens that's for sure.

It's incredibly sharp, edge to edge and across the zoom range with good colour and contrast and a mind boggling 4 stop IS. Lab tests I've read indicate that the performance is only very slightly worse than equivalent Canon 'L' primes, and that's quite an achievement in a zoom.

It's also much smaller lighter when compared with the f2.8L, and not that much heavier than the non IS version. I can carry it around all day, where'd I'd rather not lug the f2.8, and that's really what it's all about.

Other than the fact that it only goes to 200mm and is white I really can't think of a bad thing to say about it. I can't be the only person that would be prepared to pay a little more for a black 'L' lens...

The lens is really quite long (not much shorter than an un-zoomed 100-400L), but *doesn't* extend (or rotate) when zoomed and the zoom ring doesn't have to be turned too far to go from 70-200. You can still manually focus with AF switched on and focusing is as quick and quiet as you'd expect from an 'L' series lens, so it copes really well with moving targets.

If you have the money, can settle for 200mm top focal length, want to take a lens out and about and don't mind white, it's almost a no-brainer.

This is an awesome piece of kit.

It's my first 'professional' L series lens to go with my 450D. What can I say? If you buy this lens you won't be disappointed in any way whatsoever.

It comes with the lens hood and a nice fabric case - although I can't see the case protecting it from knocks in any way whatsoever - it's more for protecting it from scratches and rubs when it's in your camera bag - which is hopefully nicely padded.

The focussing is rapid and you'd be surprised at what light levels this will work well in - I've used it indoors with a flash (430EXII), and without a tripod, and had some very nice, well balanced, shots.

I was weighing up whether to buy this, the EFS version with image stabilisation or try and save even more money to buy the f2/8 version of this lens. In the end I wanted my first 'professional' lens and really couldn't justify spending any more on a hobby.

It looks awesome on my camera - if you're really vain and don't want this on your camera because the colours will clash, then you don't want the quality enough.

Finally - these really hold their value on the second-hand market. If you buy one of these, keep it for a year (and look after it!!) then you'll get most of your money back - which will maybe help pay for the IS or f2.8 model - or the IS f2.8 model!

You can't lose - and while you own this lens, you'll gain a new appreciation for the quality of your camera and lens system. You will never want to buy a non-L series lens ever again!

This is the best trully profesionable and affordable telezoom. Nothing like cheap 70-300 lenses, it is highly quality able to produce stunning pictures.

Image quality is beyond dispute, autofocus is almost instant and totally accurate.
It is the best L grade lens for its price.
