Canon 70-200mm f/4 L USM Lens Review
Updated Mar 31, 2006
Because depth of field is relatively narrow at 200mm and f/4 this lens does a good job of blurring backgrounds and makes a nice lens for portraits.
I frequently use a 62mm Nikon 6T closeup lens with the 70-200 f/4 L for macro photographs. While not at quite the same level as a dedicated macro lens, this setup yields excelent quality images. A 67mm to 62mm step-down ring is used to attach the Nikon 6T to the lens. Despite the use of the step-down ring I've seen no vignetting in any photos taken with this combination.
If you need a 70-200mm lens and don't need f/2.8 or IS, get this lens.
