As usual, Amazon delivered it quickly (2 days). Had to remember to ship it to work because it required a signature for delivery. Might have felt a little better if they would have padded the box they put the lens box in (they just basically dropped the Canon box into an amazon box). It was sliding around a bit when I received it. Just feel like a precision item like this would be better packaged by Amazon. However, I am fully pleased.
Most of the pictures I took on auto setting but some on manuel focus and got good pictures both ways. I waited three years and several trips before I invested in this lens. The only mistake I made by making this purchase was that I waited so long. I missed some great shots I could have made earlier with this lens. You get what you pay for.
This lens is a big boy too, especially long with the lens hood attached. That combined with the "white" lens pro look, you'll definitely get a lot of (unwanted?) attention walking around with this.
Oh any one other side note, I really like how this lens zooms internally as this helps with maneuverability since you end up getting a good feel of how much space you're going to need regardless of whether you're at 70mm or 200mm.
The EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II is excellent. This lens might actually be slightly sharper than my non-IS 70-200. Lens flare is significantly reduced compared to my old lens. The image stabilization system makes it possible to get shots that were flat out impossible to capture hand-held using the non-IS version. I can get tack sharp results shooting at 1/30 sec zoomed at 200mm. I could probably try shooting even slower and still get sharp focus. However, if you're shooting candid pictures of people talking or anything else with slight on-going movement you must shoot at a fast enough frame rate to stop action.
This lens has some other design touches that improve over the previous 70-200mm f/2.8L lenses. The lens hood has a different design that locks into place (you can't accidentally knock it off). The lens cap design is new. I had to remove the lens hood on my old 70-200 lens to attach the lens cap. The new lens cap design has a center grip that makes it much easier to attach with the lens hood still in place.
This might be the best zoom lens Canon makes.
The downsides to this lens: at over $2000 it's very expensive -even with the $300 instant rebate applied. The lens is also pretty heavy. It feels noticeably more heavy than my non-IS 70-200mm lens, and that one was already pretty heavy. But the versatility of this lens and the great looking results it delivers will have most professional shooters not minding the weight. The size of this lens may also attract unwanted attention if you're trying to take a lot of candid shots.
My shots now are crisp, bright, beautiful depth of field and rich colors. I'm so happy that I bought this lens, and I know I could never afford it if I had to buy a new one. Great purchase!
