Superb lens.  I have had it a long time ... about 6 years + I think.  I originally got it for a 10D and then a 1DS II ... it is now used on a 5D III.  I have always been impressed with the image quality and colours/contrast produced by this brute of a lens.  It is heavy but really is an all in one lens.  My wife, who is a professional photographer, swears by it for weddings if at a varied venue where there is enough light.  You are hard pushed to tell in the real world difference between ...

I heard that this lens was heavy, yes is really heavy, but after i received I didn't change it back, this is my new everyday toy, sharp pictures, fast focusing. Build quality is definitely that of the 'L' series, is much slower than primes, I always keep my 50mm f/1.4 just in case a low light situation.
