When I want to get close to nature and shoot wildlife, I turn to my favorite lens, the Canon EF 70-200mm F/4 L IS USM. I’ve had the this telephoto lens for almost two years now and all I can say is, it’s really an amazing lens. It’s sharp on all focal lengths, it’s got image stabilization and it’s light compare to it’s bigger brother the Canon EF 70-200mm F/2.8 L IS USM I and II. Sure an F/2.8 is really faster than an F/4 especially in low light, but the size, weight, price and current technological advancement of new camera bodies sporting higher ISO’s made me choose the F/4L IS over the F/2.8L version. Besides, if I really need an F/2.8 on a shoot, I can always rent it from Borrowlenses.com. You can rent Canon EF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS USM I for only $54.00 for three days and the EF 70-200mm F/2.8 L IS USM II for $68.00 for three days.

The EF 70-200mm F/4L IS USM when paired with an APS-C camera like the Canon EOS 7D, 60D, 50D and Rebel series cameras, is perfect if you want to get close. It gives you a 35mm equivalent focal lenght of 112-320mm (using canon’s 1.6x crop factor)

Although not really an lens for bird photography, adding patience can help you capture some pretty amazing shots.

A longer focal is for sure the choice of many wildlife photographers out there, but the 70-200mm F/4 can surely make lots of amazing wildlife photographs, all you need is creativity and lots of ideas.
