    If you can afford it, get the 70-200 f4L. Much better quality.

    Is that $ or £

    It's a pretty good lens for shooting scenery or maybe wildlife that doesn't move too fast. The max aperture is not very big which makes it hard to get fast shutter speeds. It has IS, which is great but it won't help to freeze the motion of fast moving subjects.
