The famous four are:
1) EF 70-200mm F4L USM.
2) EF 70-200mm F4L IS USM.
3) EF 70-200mm F2.8L USM.
4) EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM.
So I started to do extensive reading up on these four lenses and I surf the net for all the possible users’ review and information I can find. After much consideration and after reading not less than 20 articles and 40 reviews on internet, I’ve decided to go for the EF 70-200mm F4L USM. Why? Of the 4, the F4L Non IS happens to be the sharpest among the four. Also taking into consideration that I may not do any telelphoto shots or portrait shots at night, so F4 is already sufficient for most applications that I am doing. And I am glad to find out later that this is also the cheapest & lightest among the four siblings.
