CANON EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS USM LENS REVIEW & TEST, WITH SAMPLE IMAGES
This is the lens everybody wants, and with only a few in the country to date, some real world use sample images, were in my opinion, in order.
The lens is heavy compared to the 24-105 f/4 L, but not so much so that you don't want to keep it on the camera.
The focus speed was much faster than the 70-200mm f/4 (non IS) i traded in, and at first test sharper than that lens.
Distortion is not noticeable in any of the images on this shoot, however architectural type images would be a real test of that.
