Review of Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM

Canon 70-200mm F4 L

Review of Canon EF zoom lens - 28 mm - 135 mm F/3.5-5.6

Canon's sharpest zoom is a rock, or brick

Advantages: Awesomely sharp. Wide Aperture gives great control. Great colour.
Disadvantages: A little fragile. Would prefer with Image Stabiliser.
