Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value I love this lens. I've been shooting with my 70-200 f4 lens which is great, but I wanted a faster lens and this the 70-200 f2.8 was out of my price range. But I realized that when shooting the bride and groom at the alter I was always at the 200 focal length so I thought this lens could be a good alternative. I also bought an ND6 filter to allow me to open the lens in sunlight, but so I haven't had need for it. The one thing you have to be careful about is the temptation to use the 2.8 setting while photographing a couple where one person is slightly back from the other. The depth of field at 2.8 is very shallow and I've caught myself getting a slightly soft image on one of the subjects. But it's a great lens, tough as nails with beautiful optics. February 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Glad I bought it Haven't used the 70-200 personally, but don't feel that it will be better than this lens. Haven't seen a zoom that was better than a prime anyway. Great detail, color,andcontrast. True what was said about edge sharpnessSome may need zoom ability, but you can move or switch from horizontal to vertical to get around that. The price is great for the quality of the pictures you get.May find it a little heavy, but I had been without a camera for a while, so it took a little time to get used to shooting with it. Now, weight isn't a problem. But that heavyness is sign of solid construction.Compatible with extenders is a plus, although I haven't been using it with one due to shooting sports mostly at the moment with it.I don't use auto focus, so I actually had to get used to the sharpness so I could tell when something was or wasn't exactly in focus.But very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow! I use this lens on an APS-C sensor EOS SL1 Rebel for landscape photography. Focal length after the 1.6 crop is 320mm on APS-C. This lens kills! Truly stellar long telephoto image quality. I passed on the 70-200 L zooms because I really only cared about the top end of the focal length range. The problem with the 70-200 zooms is that 200mm performance is mediocre. You need to back off the zoom for clean edge to edge sharp photos on those lenses. I wanted killer 200mm performance on APS-C and this lens delivers. Amazingly sharp edge to edge, great color, great contrast, very little distortion, and very little chromatic aberration. Edge to edge sharpness and chromatic aberration is even great at F/2.8. I mostly use this lens from F/8 to F/13 for long depth of field. I'm so happy with the photos I'm getting from this lens. This lens is a real sleeper also. It's very discrete in appearance for the long focal length due to its short length and black color. Don't forget the black accessary tripod mount ring. The model number is A II B. I found out that the B stands for black. The tripod mount ring model number was verified through Canon. If you're serious about long telephoto image quality on APS-C, this is the right tool for the job. It wont disappoint. January 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Lens This is an exceptional prime lens. The images it produces are outstanding. I also shoot with a 70-200mm II is and I find myself using it more than the zoom lens. It can produce great images hand held but if you can use a tripod or a monopod do so. It's a great lens for the price. If you are shooting action then you should go for the 70-200 mm II is if you are not experienced enough to use a prime lens without image stabilization. July 15, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by OK lens I bought this as a backup to my 70-200 2.8 III lens and it is a disappointment. Does not hold up to the performance of the 70-200 AT ALL. Maybe I got a bad copy, but mine is not god enough to be worth shooting. I keep it around for my daughter (she's 14 and has a rebel) to shoot. Not recommended... April 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by another sleeper lens I bought this one pretty recently but I have to say it's gotten a lot of use.I'm not a big fan of zooms, but I have a few. I was looking at the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II. Very pricey, and it would probably spend most of its time at 200mm. So for 1/3 of the price I get this 200mm f.2.8L II. I think it's actually sharper, and I don't miss the IS much because honestly below 1/200 of a second your subject motion comes into play. Also this lens is quite sharp wide open.It's heavy-ish but certanly not in its focal length range and certainly lighter than the 70-200s are.If you don't mind changing lenses to get the job done, get this lens. Between this and the 135 f/2L I find the short telephoto range is covered. September 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lens at a great price... This is a great lens. It is fast at f2.8, small, and inconspicuous compared to the other Canon 200mm (zoom and prime) white lenses.The build quality is superb - typical for a L lens.I find it balances very nicely with my 5D mk II (with battery grip).AF, IQ and contrast are great. The AF is very fast and quiet.The only real down side is the lack of IS and of course it isn't a zoom. The 70-200 f/2.8 IS L is purchased in place of this lens by many people. The 70-200 is a fantastic lens, but for the price and size this lens is hard to beat. April 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Suprisingly Awesome I was carrying a 70-200, but realised I was permanently jammed out at 200 for wildlife/sports, and the results were not quite what I had hoped for. I tried this because it is 2.8L, compatible with the extenders, nice price, and I was betting on gaining prime sharpness over my zoom. It delivers, and it keeps surprising me. It's lightweight. It's black, so it doesn't scream for attention. I don't use the tripod mount often but I was a little annoyed that it wasn't included, had to pick one up separately. February 24, 2013
