One of the mainstays in any collection of 35mm format lenses is the 70-200mm zoom. Decades ago zoom lenses weren’t considered as high-quality as primes at the same focal length, but optical improvements and undeniable convenience have won the day and almost every brand now offers at least one lens in this category. Canon’s 70-200 “L” models are legendary, and updates to both the f/2.8 and f/4.0 versions have been announced. It will be very interesting to read critical reviews in the future as to how they compare. I’ve used both previous models with outstanding results and personally lean toward the f/4.0 version (due to significantly less bulk and weight) unless there’s a real need for the one stop extra light-gathering power.
