Fast Telezoom Lens Reviews

Photography Monthly Magazine (September 2007) has a handy review of fast telezoom lenses that gives comparisons between 10 different options on the market.

The review shows that if you’ve got money to spend that you can definitely get improved results – however most of the lenses tested produced excellent results despite the variation in prices.

Following is a brief summary of each lens reviewed, it’s rating and it’s Pros and Cons. For the full reviews with more detail check out Photography Monthly’s September 2007 edition.

1. Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR

Rating: 92 out of 100
Description: “Just as desirable as the Canon f/2.8 version, Nikon goes a step further by giving two Vibration Reduction modes for Normal and Active use. “
Mounts available:
Pros: Excellent image quality, very fact focussing, vibration reduction options.
Cons: Tripod mount tricky for some quick release systems

2. Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

Rating: 91 out of 100
Description: “As you would expect from a lens this far up the price ladder, the optic keeps the same orientation throughout it’s operation with internal focusing and a non-rotating front element.”
Mounts available:
Pros: Fast, accurate, able to be used with teleconverters due to it’s f/2.8 aperture.
Cons: Issues with attaching tripod collar, mid range in terms of cost.
