High Key Light over Sharp Rocks

The Canon 70-200mm f/4 L IS lens is simply a fantastic lens for photography.  The contrast, color, clarity, and most of all, sharpness, is simply stunning, best of the lens in this class and it's price range.  Here's one taken at the mountain top of Whistler, Canada, of a mountain top range over many miles away, and just check out the sharp edges of the rocks at the mountain top and all those tiny trees miles away!

Anyone who is using Canon EOS DSLR cameras for photography should simply either purchase this lens, or keep it on your short list of lenses to invest in and keep.  Highly recommended.  Make sure you get the f/4 L IS version, as the none IS version used different optic glasses and it's not as sharp as the IS version. 

According to many people who bought the new Canon 70-300mm f/4, or the new 70-200 f/2.8 L II, the sharpness of these two new lenses approach the sharpness of the f/4 L IS.   But those new lenses are much heavier, not as convenient to carry during day-long outdoor shootings, or in occasions like bring it with you to the ski slops, like where this photo was taken.
