It's heavy, don't get me wrong, but this is a far easier-to-live-with lens than a 300/2.8 could ever be. With an RRS plate, it travels in my Think Tank shoulder bag with a minimum of fuss. The lens hood is the same style as the one that came on my 100L (i.e., the kind I prefer, with a confident locking action that lets you know it's not being knocked off by a well-meaning passerby in a packed venue). Great tactile feel for the buttons, and weather sealing that I've put to the test with some trips to the coast.
And the age-old primes vs. zooms image quality debate? The 100L has a reputation for being no slouch in the resolution department, and I honestly can't tell a difference with the IS II. Don't think you'll have to trade in your art cred or anything because you're buying a lens favored by professional PJs - anything you can do with a prime of similar aperture, you can do with this lens.
Just buy it already. But you might want to do some barbell curls in the meantime.
I will start off with some technical aspects of this lens very because it warrants that respect. The Canon EF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS II USM’s focal length is the best next step up beyond your standard zoom lens, which may provide anywhere from 35-70mm. The F/2.8 aperture represents one of the widest lens openings in the marketplace currently, which can help your camera sensor by allowing more light into the lens for cleaner images. This lens weighs in about 3.2 pounds with 23 elements in 19 groups of glass (1 fluoride and 5 UD Elements inside the barrel of the lens) This lens also comes built with a variety of very highly technological functions such as: a focus limiter ranging from 1.2 meters to infinity to 2.5 meters to infinity, an auto-focus and manual focus switch system, and image stabilization modes 1 and 2. This lens also comes equipped with two focusing rings, one towards the front of the lens as the focal length ring and the other towards the back of the lens which allows you to adjust different focal lengths from 70mm to 200mm. This lens also comes equipped with a tripod collar to place both the lens and camera on a steady tripod for shooting pictures. Another special technical aspect of this lens is that you can attach both a 1.4x converter and a 2.0x converter to increase your focal length from 98mm to 280mm with the 1.4 X converter and 140mm to 400mm with a 2.0x converter on a full frame body.
Now that the technical aspects are out of the way, I would like to focus on how the EF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS II USM actually performs when in use. My favorite and best uses for this lens is that it provides excellent focal length to capture shots of subjects that might be a little bit further away than from where you may be standing. While most lenses that people typically use may require that the photographer to get more up close to their subject due to limited focal length or distance, the EF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS II USM gives the photographer a lot of versatility and flexibility to capture subjects sharply and cleanly without having to get too closer to the subject. My second favorite function of this lens is that it has an ultra-fast auto-focus system. While holding down the shutter speed halfway and changing your subjects, both the lens and camera can instantly focus on your subjects in a split second with great ease. My third favorite function of this lens is that both the image stabilization and the auto-focus mechanics are very quiet. My fourth favorite function of this lens is that it is very lightweight compared to bigger telephoto and super telephoto lenses. At only 3.2 pounds, this lens is easy to hand hold enough to walk around with in your hand or attached to a strap with your camera without much of a burden at all. The superior quality, speed and versatility of the EF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS II USM makes this one of the most well respected and favorite medium telephoto zoom range lens on the market for the last 21 years with this latest version as its 5th revision.
