Canon EF 70-200mm F/4L IS USM Review
The Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L is one of the L-series telephoto zoom lens for Canon Digital SLR cameras. It is equipped with technologies like Ultra-sonic monitor and Image Stabilizer of up to 4 stops of vibration correction. However, this IS uses more battery power.
The lens looks heavy-duty and solid. It is expensive and looks expensive, too. Nevertheless, this camera is being sold at a very big discount these days which is almost half of its original price. So, with a big discount, then this camera is reasonably priced. With its weight of 26.8 ounces, it is considered not too heavy compared to other lenses in the L series. The image quality is superb and the bokeh makes a new photographer a pro. Images are keen, radiant, detailed and the colors are simply amazing. This image quality is expected from a very pricey lens from the Canon L series. Also, you could hardly see any noise on the pictures.
The durability of this lens is not 100% guaranteed. Others find some flaws after four years of minimal use. The repair fee is somewhere around $300. This comes with a one year warranty. The outside casing of the zoom ring up to the mount is solid plastic. And the rest is made of L-grade metal. This cuts the weight a little. This lens has a superior focus speed with minimum chromatic aberration. However, it is necessary to have enough light or would need the use of flash for indoor photo shooting. So this lens doesn't perform excellently on portrait photography unless you add some lights. This lens is a little sluggish for the majority of indoor sports but lightning fast for the outdoor sports.
The Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L has a moderate telephoto and works wonderfully outdoors and for still life images without the need of a tripod. But when it comes to moving subjects indoors, a faster shutter speed is needed and definitely, you need to look around first before deciding on this lens. In conclusion, this IS is a dream lens especially for its image quality, weight and selling price these days. It has drawn a lot of compliments from many photographers, both amateurs and professionals. It is worth buying and it won’t disappoint you.
