Very compact feels good quality and robust, early results promising

Heavy for size and lens hood makes lens normal length really needs a rubber or collapsable hood

John, Chichester

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very compact, fast and quiet focus, nice handling, manual USM focus override can be used at any time, very effective 2-mode stabilisation (2- and 3-axis), very good image quality although not quite L-series (but not L-series price either). Rather expensive but good discounts are available and in any case if you want a noticeably better lens (like the Canon 70 - 200 f2.8L) it'll cost you a LOT more - and the L is a big heavy lens too.
Bad points:
Not so compact with the very necessary Canon-supplied lens hood (although you can reverse it to stow the lens), quite a heavy lens (but pretty light for one of that focal length).
