5.0 out of 5 stars Superb lens, 20 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L USM Lens (Accessory)
As you'd expect from a Canon L series lens, the build quality is superb, the images are pin sharp. It's a heavy beast at almost three pounds in weight, but it's still ok to use hand held if you wish to. This lens is ideal for sports photography and I use it for shooting football, but I've also used it for close up work as the wide aperture throws the background out beautifully. I've used it for portrait photos and photographing flowers, with excellent results. It's not a cheap lens by any means, and if you need a portrait lens the 50mm f1.8 II will serve you very well indeed for under £80, and I've used that lens in low light behind the goal at football matches to great effect. This one, however, is a fantastic all-rounder and well worth the money. If you find you need more reach, grab yourself an extender and snap away. Great lens.
