From the Manufacturer
Capture the far-off action of fast-paced sports or zoom in for an intimate portrait with the Canon EF 70-200mm telephoto zoom lens. This high-performance, L-series telephoto zoom lens is distinguished by such features as an f/4 maximum aperture, an inner focusing system, and a ring-type ultra-sonic monitor (USM). The last two features combine to deliver quick and quiet autofocusing--a priority for many amateur and professional photographers. In addition, photographers can attach and use a circular polarizing filter without difficulty because the front lens element does not rotate during focusing. Compatible with the same tripod collar (sold separately) used with the EF 300mm f/4L USM lens, the lens carries a one-year warranty.

Isolate the Interesting Part
The eye tends to see the whole rather than the individual parts. It also sees whatís near and not whatís far. By bringing attention to those things missed by the eye, you can create many interesting pictures. It could be the grimace of an athlete, the grill of a classic car, or a girl against a blurred background. Telephoto lenses can also compress images to give dramatic effects. You are limited only by your imagination.

There will be a higher learning curve than with more experienced photographers who have a solid grasp on shutter speed working in conjunction with focal length because there is no image stabilization (IS) on this lens. For videographers, a tripod or monopod is pretty much a must-have when shooting in lower light (even in the shade) that is not bright sunlight. There are ways to compensate for no IS with the most common being increasing the ISO. However, unless you have one of the more modern cameras like a Canon 70D or Canon 6D which produce much lower noise (distortion) at higher ISO's, you will more than likely need to make sure you have a flash to compensate for no IS.
Build quality is solid; no plastic parts here. However, even with it being an L series lens, this does NOT have weather sealing. If you are a nature/outdoor photographer shooting in wet and dusty climates a lot, this is something to consider. For me, it is negligible. Image quality is excellent; what I expect from an L series lens. The other nice thing about this lens is that the aperture remains the same throughout the focal length as opposed to the cheaper lenses that have a "variable" aperture which means the aperture will change automatically as you zoom in. The weight of this lens is significantly less than the much pricier 70-200mm f/2.8 version which I have shot with numerous times. A lot of lenses produce soft images when shooting at its maximum aperture (or wide open). However, this lens produces sharp images at f/4.
I shoot with both a Canon 7D and Canon 5D body. The 5D is a full frame camera body where the *viewable* focal length is 70-200mm. The Canon 7D is a crop-sensor body (as well as the Canon 10-70D and Rebel bodies) where the *viewable* focal length is 112-320mm. I already own a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 and a Canon 50mm 5/1.8 lens to help cover any low light shots. I also have a Canon 10/22 f/3.5-4.5 lens to cover wide angle shots. So, the 70-200mm f/4 compliments what I already have.
In conclusion, and in my humble opinion, there is no lens that comes close in image quality at this price range; this is the most affordable of the Canon "L" series lineup. However, for beginners, expect a little more of a learning curve in using this lens properly and knowing when to use it. If IS is a must-have for you and you don't mind paying a little more, then get the f/4 IS version which is right at about $1000. But if you want the L series image quality at an affordable price, this is it!
This is actually a great lens and is probably killer for the Sony A7III and other cameras with IBIS, but NOT so great for Canon users, unless you are going to follow the 1/focal length rule and use this outside or indoors with strobes/flash....
Would be perfect to use for head shots, etc. where you want a fast shutter speed to avoid seeing pics of your subject with their eyes closed...
Also good for say air shows, where you are going to naturally have a very fast shutter speed anyway..
It's super light and the focus and zoom rings are nice and smooth and focus is really quick....
Also, despite it "only" being F/4 it's easy to get BOKEH...Have your subject as far away/close to you as possible to get the framing you want at 200mm (320mm on Canon APS-C) and make sure the background behind them/it is as far away as possible...Maybe your subject is 8' from you, but the nearest object behind them is 20-30' or more away...
Color/contrast is nice, although not quite as nice as a 2.8 version, but those are at least twice as heavy and as much as 4 times as expensive!
All in all, the cheapest (generally, check the 24-105 F/4 also) intro to Canon L lenses you can find..

The lack of IS while there are times when I'd like to be able to use a 1/120 or 1/160 shutter hand held at 200mm I've honestly managed to work around it just bumping the ISO slightly on my camera. So the lack of IS hasn't really been a big issue. The image quality is absolutely stellar. The day I got this I went out to take a few quick photos. I'll attach a few samples.
The weight is great with my 6D. Heavy enough that you know its there, but light enough that it doesn't feel like arm day at the gym.
I found this Canon 70 200 f4 without IS under my budget, since i mostly shoot landscape that too on tripod I found this one value for money. The picture quality and the sharpness is better than the Sony lens. However the EyeAF is not as quick as the Sony which is obvious and known to me before I bought it (Also depends on the adapter I'm using) . But i have one Canon APSC dslr as well and its fantastic to shoot with that.
Being a Non-IS lens it gives a fantastic picture in the low light situation as well. Nevertheless to the say its an L series lens and the built quality is just fantastic.
The product got delivered before the expected date.. Had a wonderful experience.. I would definitely recommend the seller.
