    Anyone considering this lens already knows its attributes from the normal photography equipment web sites and/or magazines, so there’s nothing new to say about that. All I can say is that my experience with it so far is exactly what I expected – this is one of the world’s very best lenses.

    I bought this lens after seeing images captured with it in a well known internet photography forum. Although the price made me think many times (twice wasn’t enough) before I decided to purchase it, the performance of this lens has been worth every penny.
    I have an 85mm f/1.2L II that performs impressively, focuses sharp and has an equally beautiful bokeh, but the AF focus speed coupled with its smooth creamy bokeh put this 200mm prime in a class of its own.
    If you have the need for a sharp, fast focusing, prime lens that is sharp wide open and great in low light… this is the lens for you.

    The pictures are great. The speed is what you need for low light sports. Its allowing me to take a much better shot of the kids in poor light. Comes in a great case. The only modification I would make is allow room for the Mark III to be on the lense in the case. Would make traveling easier.
    Because I am shooting sports in a gym I am shooting by hand. You can see some of the shots @ Remember, I am not a pro I just shot our school sporting events so I need all the technology I can get to capture the memories for the kids.
    Now I would like to see Canon make the 28 300 in a F/1.2 IS USM
    Gotta Dream!

    No question canon lenes rock! My favorite is the 300mm f/2.8 canon lens, which is typically sold at $1000 less than the 200mm F/2.0 lens. The 300mm is truly amazing.

    Along with the f/2.0 200mm and f/2.8 300mm lens, I also own the 70-200mm canon f/2.8 zoom lens. I capture both night and day sports shots. I use the 300mm and 70-200mm over 95% of the time, as the flexibility and quality of the 70-200mm zoom lens with the spectacular shots obtained from the 300mm just can’t be beat. Don’t get me wrong, the 200mm is really nice as well. But for almost the same price, go for the combination of the 300mm f/2.8 and the 70-200mm f/2.8 canon lens. This combination provides comparable image quality and additional flexibility.

    As a side note, unlike the 400mm f/2.8 lens, I have never been stopped or questioned when bringing the 300mm to a sports event. Large enough to get noticed by the spectators but not a concern to the security guards.

    Granted your needs may be different than mine. In that case, rent before you buy.

    I do a lot of sports photography, and this is one of my favorite lenses for it. The Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM Super Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras is the classic sports photographer’s lens, but it’s extremely expensive, and so huge and heavy it’s not practical to bring to many sporting events.

    I had been using the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras instead, which is cheaper, lighter, and easier to get past stadium security.

    But this lens is probably the most useful. It’s smaller than the 300mm f/2.8L. (But not lighter; it weighs almost exactly the same. You will need a monopod if you’re going to use it for any length of time.) The street price is a little higher, though the list price is lower. But the extra speed is great for night games or indoor sports. And you can use an extender and get roughly the equivalent of the 300mm f/2.8.

    Excellent lens, and definitely one of my favorites.
