I bought this in lieu of the more expensive Canon mk II or the original Canon IS 70-200.  My copy is very sharp, focuses quickly (perhaps a hair slower than the Canons) and I prefer the color.  (Sorry, it matters).  I've been very pleased with it and the performance per dollar can't be beat.

I shoot with a Canon 60D and bought this lens mainly for shooting indoor Rodeo. It does an excellent job with the fast action of the Rodeo. My copy is very sharp and OS works like a charm. At more than haly the price of the new Canon and still lower than the older Canon 70-200 2.8 IS it's a real winner. Problems: None
