Default Canon EF 70-200 L f4

I have been really busy with work lately, and havent even touched my camera this year. I would like to upgrade from my 28-135 lens, but dont want to break the bank on something that will not get a ton of use.

Any of you guys have experience with this lens? I found a used one in great shape and the girl is asking $400 obo, so I may be able to get that down some. Seems like I would be able to get ,y money back out of it if needed. Worthwhile? Im used to having an IS lens, so Im concerned about that.

Great Lens, They are brand new they are $700, most Ive seen used go for $500+ so $400 is a steal.

Cool, thanks guys. Im going to pick it up and at least give it a try. Worst case, I don't like it and maybe make a few bucks in the process.

Dont see how you wont like it, Unless you are trying to shoot High ISO at night with no flash. I tell you what, if you get it for less then $400, Ill give you $450 lol

I had turned off external links on my Smug gallery. I suppose the pic went away after I did that. Never mind, sorry to interrupt
