Quick review of Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM
"I bought this lens about 6 months ago, and have taken many snaps with it. I love it. Although this is the cheapest 70-200mm in Canon's lineup, there is nothing on this lens that feels less than top quality. It feels brilliant, and the results are just as good.
