Top 5 Lenses to own- 70-200 Canon L Series 2.8

I am a Kansas City Photographer and can be found at http://kimberlypimentel.com/ 

The Canon 70-200 2.8 L series with IS- and it does not disappoint.  I have used this lens before as I have suggested always Rent first I did at Borrowlenses.com.  I rented a 70-200mm f4 with no stabilization and was not impressed the images lacked the crispness that I wanted.  

The canon 70-200 2.8 with IS had what I needed.  For me having smaller hands this is a big lens and heavy after a day of shooting you will feel this lens.  The IS is needed to provide that extra edge for your images.  This beauty of a lens provides incredible prime like images at 70mm and 200 mm.  The quality  is apparent with superb depth and accurate saturations not to mention a spot on focus  that can best be described as  tack sharp.  I would have to say that this lens is the BMW of camera lenses- Quality, Speed, Agility, Craftsmanship-you get what you pay for as the saying goes- and with this canon L Series piece I will be getting a lifetime of quality Portraiture.

Lens purchases  for a Photographer are  definitely costly when one starts to consider the L Series of Canon glass.  I would suggest renting glass before buying so that hasty purchases are not made.  My first L series lens purchase was the 50mm 1.2, the second was my 70-200 mm 2.8 with IS stabilization.
