Top customer reviews
I saw in another review that Canon wouldn't honor his rebate. I am hoping that isn't the case with mine. The rebate was for $100 off if purchased between March 2, 2014 and March 29, 2014. I bought mine on March 6th, so we will see.
Since receiving this lens I have since purchased a Joby carrying strap as even my Tamron 28mm - 300mm stresses my neck after a bit and the Canon lens is at least 2+ times heavier. I will review that product in conjunction with this lens when I have had an opportunity to utilize both together (supposed to get the strap tomorrow).
The lens comes with a nice case and a tripod collar. If you're not carrying around a bag with you, the case has a strap and a belt loop. It wasn't the best lens exchange system, but it was nice when I didn't want to carry around and entire bag for just one other lens. I also strapped a speedlite on for more formal pictures.
It would be nice to have IS, but for me, it's not worth the additional price. The lens will get very heavy after a couple of hours, so you'll need to pump some iron, or this camera.

If you're looking for a 70-200MM lens that is fast and reasonably priced, get this one. IS is great, and will probably increase the number of useable photos you get, but this lens will still rock your world.
I read all the reviews until I couldn't see straight. I finally decided for the Canon f2.8L without the IS. It was faster than the f4 version and focused faster than the Tamron. It didn't have the optical stabilization of the Sigma but I heard the Canon was sharper. I can't verify that but I know my copy is nice and sharp.
When the lens arrived I couldn't wait to try it out. It is definitely a hefty lens! It took a while to get used to the weight. The lens just feels solid and the build quality is what you would expect from an L lens.
I had buyers remorse and thought I should have waited and saved some more for the IS II. I wasn't getting very sharp photos in low light. It turns out I just needed a little more time with the lens. I needed to get used to weight of the lens and use proper hand holding technique and sufficient ISO and shutter speeds. I finally saw how well I could shoot with the lens when I took some photos at my cousin's wedding in an awfully lit church. The pictures I took(no flash, using natural light) were brighter than the official photographer who was using a Sigma 70-200 OS and flash.
Overall I'm very happy with the lens. I believe this lens requires more attention to proper technique and settings than the Canon f2.8L IS II. That lens is more forgiving and flexible. To all those photographers on the fence about getting a non IS lens, this lens is sharp and fast. It will make you learn to be a better photographer.
