I have the 70-200 F2.8L and love it, I wanted the IS version but I was photographing my cousin wedding and did want to pay the $210 to rent the lens for 3 days but didnt have the extra $300 for the IS version but I am very happy, plus if I every want to sell the lens Im looking at 75-85% of what I paid for it, no normal lens hold its value like that

I just bought the ww and am considering to buy the 70-200 L IS USM. Can you post some photos to explain the difference?

If you look at:-


I believe this was taken with my 100-400 L Lens, if you look:-


There are loads of boat pictures, unfortunately, I could tell you which are with my 70-200 and which are with my 100-400, but if I get chance tonight, I'll see if I can find some examples for you!

But I think this is the 70-200 L lens:-

Have two "L" lenses.......... 24mm, 1.4 & 35 - 350. The 24mm is a great all-around lens and the 35 - 350 is ideal for just about anything, especially sports photography.

My 17-40L is very good, but my 70-200 f4L is outstanding. I can tell the difference in my images compared to my EF and EF-S zooms. My two primes, though, are just as good optically as my Ls (24mm2.8 and 50mm1.8). Still, nothing beats my 17-85IS for overall usefulness.
