It is also fitted with the very primitive Mark I foot-zoom mechanism... so really not much good to the OP.

... alternatively, you could have told him what he wanted to know instead of pointing him towards a list that he'd have to search through.

Those two are it as far as fast IS lenses go.

but...if you don't know the answer...and see nobody is responding...i think pointing to a direction where they can find the answer is better than not posting at all...

As far as I know, those two are it as far as Canon zooms go (the rest are either f/3.5 or f/4 at the fastest). I don't know about the OS lenses (or VR, for that matter).

For fixed telephoto there's also the 300 f/2.8 IS and the 400 f/2.8 IS. Uber expensive, big, fantasic lenses.

Same, that's why I asked. I was mostly interested to see what other lens manufacturers had with their OS, VR, or whatever. But the list in the second post proved most helpful :)

yea, in may (probably) the canon 200mm f/2L IS will be released, making the best lens for low light and static subjects in the world. Though it will weigh 6.6 lbs lol. think of it as 909 bukcs a pound. Man, i thought almonds were expensive at 2.43 a pound! :D


Na, just kidding, you are still a loser.
^^ If you higlight this you will be cool ^^

Since Canon and Sigma make no zoom lenses faster than f/2.8, the obvious answer is that the fastest IS/OS zoom lenses that are available are f/2.8.

As someone else mentioned, there is one f/2 lens with IS, and so the EF 200/2L IS is the fastest IS lens (zoom or prime) available.
