Canon makes 5 different 70-200mm lenses. This is the one with the big f/2.8 aperture but NO image stabilization. It's is a good choice if you know you will be shooting outdoors in bright light and won't need image stabilization. It is less expensive than the IS version, the image quality is excellent, and it is slightly lighter in weight because it contains fewer lens elements. Overall, it is a fine lens with excellent image quality. We've had some customers report that they prefer this version because of superior image quality and attractive price.
