not been on for a while but I picked up on canon lense70-200 f4l
cannot find where it was because I have been off priceing them up.
My problem is...one is ais usm at over £1000 and the other is usm at £400+ so apart from the price what is the difference? Anyone know?

The expensive one has Image stabilisation built in. It's easier to handhold when shooting and dampens out camera and lens shake. I had the other one and really liked it. I used it on a tripod.
Hi Straycat thanks for that Is £400 a reasonable price for the usm..and do you know what it stands for
USM = UltraSonic Motor.
The 70-200 F4 with image stabalisation is better image quality than the none IS.
It can be used with the 1.4 extender and still provides great results.
I thought it a worth while upgrade from the non IS.
Have a look at http://www.the-digital-picture.com/ for a review of most things Canon.
