    In my work there's an expression - One only gets to choose two of the following: "Cheaper, Faster, Better". There's no "cheaper" about this lens. Having said that, Canon went out of their way to make sure "faster" and "better" really counted. I cannot compare this to the previous version , though by all accounts, it too was a fine lens. But I can easily see the quality of this one - It's built like a tank, and in my preliminary shooting with it, I found everything that's been said to be true: Fast Focusing - the lens focuses very fast and accurately. Whether "One Shot" or one of the two AI modes, focus is found very quickly with my EOS 5D Mark II. Sharp - I have a vintage zoom lens that covers this range. It's a lot lighter and quite sharp. But to use it with the EOS I have to manually focus, which can lead to errors and soft images. No such problems with this lens. This lens is sharp! Great Color - the colors recorded through this lens are accurate, vibrant, without anything added by the lens - a pretty incredible achievement for Canon given its 23 elements. Nice background blur - because of the long focal lengths and large maximum aperture, throwing things into soft focus in the background is one of the strengths of this lens. Some have commented about the nature of the blur but this has not bothered me. For me this lens covers the range where my 24-105 leaves off, and replaces the manual zoom that worked so well for me, but adds the automation (Image Stabilization, Auto-Focus, Auto-Exposure) these cameras and lenses are known for. If you're looking for an incredibly flexible, rugged, fast operating lens, it would be hard to pass this up. I expect I will be seeing muscles develop in my forearms and shoulders - this is one heavy piece of glass. If you want light and compact consider the f/4.0 version of this lens - said to be an incredible optic as well! Update 7/28/10: After some time with this lens I have come back to repeat my earlier praise and express how incredibly useful this lens is. I shoot close-ups of people and plants - this is great; I like to shoot things from a good distance either to gain better perspective or to capture more natural behavior - again, this works for me; In terms of color, sharpness, and overall handling, this lens is world-class!

    As an advanced amature photographer that has used Canon equipment for more than 30 years I am disappointed that this lens needed major repairs after 2 years of use. I protected this lens and there is not a mark on it. It it is that fragile it is not pro quality.

            I had the same lens in the f4 version it it was sharp as a tack. This one performs even better. The sad part is that my last one was stolen. But it was insured. I do suggest you insure your Canon products as well as register all of them. They are high quality product that deserve respect!

              After doing lengthy comparisons to other quality 70-200mm lenses through numerous review sites, forums and renting, the Canon EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM was my choice, hands down. This lens has superior sharpness I couldn't get anywhere else and during high speed motion, it was second to none. I used this lens in a theater during a live show and the low light capability was awesome! I highly recommend this lens!

                      I rented this lens before I bought it to see if it was as good as what I was hearing. The 70-200f2.8L is II USM exceeded all my expectations for it. It might be pricey but it is well worth the price. I bought it to go with my new 5DmkIII and my well used 7D and is a perfect fit with both.

                        After five years of Web-Window shopping I finally got this 70-200 lens! At first I was somewhat deceived as my pictures where not as clear as I had expected. But as I got more and more use to this new lens, the better the pictures became. So basically when you start out with this lens it takes a bit of getting use to it!! 2.8F gives me the extra edge from 4F in order to be able to do clear pictures without having to compensate with other functions. I do not wish to repeat all that has been said is provisos reviews about this lens, it is truly a great piece of equipment, you feel the quality build and when its mounted on your camera you know the output will be upscale. Beware, its a heavy lens to carry around. On trips, it is a huge consideration. Handling it becomes somewhat of a challenge because of its size and weight, handling it is almost a work out. I rented one before spending the huge dollars and decided this lens was for me, and I do not regret it. When you gear your camera body to full servo with high shutter speed, this lens quicks butt! Its a work horse with the finesse and speed of a leopard!! Love this lens and strongly recommend it.

                                I upgraded my Digital Rebel to an EOS 7D and was taking many a photographs of both of my sons playing different sport and family and friend get togethers, Night time shots, Landscape, wildlife and every now and then just shots of my dogs playing!!!! I thought my pictures came out really well with the lens that I had owned with the Rebel, boy oh boy, what a difference a lens makes!!!!!!!! After reading reviews on the Canon website, fantastic and really helpful reviews by the way, the review on PhotoPlus, great magazine for Canon users, and a very glowing recommendation from my cousin who is a top notch and successful wedding photographer, and owns the MK I of this lens, I decided to bite the bullet and purchase the EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM lens and to this day, I have absolutely, and I do mean ABSOLUTELY NO REGRET spending the cash for this fantastic awesome lens. Taking action shots with this lens is so awesome, quick auto focus, sharp shots and even panning shots when they run, I could not have gotten a better lens. When my kids go swimming and jump off of the diving board, I use a fast shutter speed and get the splash after firing off about 16 shots in 2 seconds, The 70-200 catches everything!!! Indoor games where flash is not allowed, with the f/2.8, who needs a flash. Night time photos of the sky and moon, I have got some really cool shots and made even better with HDR software. I HAD an EF-S 18-200mm as an everyday lens but in reality, the 70-200mm has never been taken off of the 7D, it isn't as heavy as some folks say it is, I have a sling strap and is much more comfortable than around the neck. I like the fact this lens focus is all internal and not a push pull design, one of the reasons I did not get the 100-400mm or 28-300mm "L" series lens, even though they getter longer focal lengths than the MK II 70-200mm. Great build quality on this lens and I am hooked on any and all "L" series lens!!!! I am saving up for another "L" series, most likely the 24-105mm, but that is a different story. Back to this lens, there is no downside to this great lens, I recommend this lens to anybody for any occasion, you will not be sorry!!!!
