    With very little experience with shooting photos, I didn’t know what to expect with this zoom lens. It is definitely a lot of money to spend blindly. I have no history to allow a comparison with other lenses but, I will say I was pleased with the results of my 1st experience using this Cannon Telephoto Zoom Lens.

  • Super Sharp Zoom that won't break your back
    by TomH

    I've owned the Canon 70-200 4.0 IS since Christmas 2019. The lens is really super sharp at all focal lengths and not really heavy. The 2.8 version is 1 f stop faster but it is heavy to me and in my view, a 1 f stop advantage is not worth doubling the weight of a vacation lens. It likely is for a wedding/pro photographer but with modern full frame cameras with fast sensors I believe a one f stop advantage, while valuable, is less critical to many hobbyists. This is a superb lens with superb sharpness to the edge and excellent contrast. As other reviewers have noted the lens stabilization does generate noise which can be picked up with in camera mics during video. If you buy a small stereo clip mic and attach to your shirt, you will eliminate the problem. Another alternative is to buy the new version of this lens, V2, which costs about $200 more. I understand that the material difference of the new model is the quieter IS.
