I got a new toy for my camera, the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM lens. This is part of canon’s L-series so it’s the top of the line in terms of construction and quality.
I’ve been playing around with it for a few days and I am very, very happy with the results. The pictures are some much sharper then the basic telephoto zoom lens that comes with camera kit.
I read articles did a lot of research on the different options out there and what people thought of this lens and it seems that for the value/quality this about as good as it gets. There is another version of this lens that has image stability built in, but costs twice as much and weights a couple pounds more making it hard to walk around with all day which was something I was looking for. There is also an f/2.8 version of this lens but that is much, much more expensive and heavier so that wasn’t an option.
