Pros: Extremely sharp and contrasty, excellent IS, fast accurate focusing and minimum focusing distance. Adapts well to the Canon 1.4x III tele-converter.Cons:

Cons: Occasional purple fringing on high-contrast subjects. Tripod collar not removable. Expensive in South Africa @ ZAR 39,695-00.

Opinion: Very well thought out lens from Canon. I emediant love the lens when I first used it. Being a non push pull zoom keeps ones hand in the same position for better stabilising the lens. I had the version 1 with which I was not happy with. It can be a bit short at the long end for photographing wildlife and birds but it pairs well with the newest 1.4 converter from Canon.

Pros: Extremely sharp and contrasty, portable, takes the Canon 1.4x III tele-converter well, fast accurate focusing, excellent IS (image stabilization), and the minimum focus distance is 1 meter.

Cons: Occasional purple fringing on high-contrast subjects. Bokeh isn't as nice as a prime, of course (but it isn't terrible). I wish the tripod collar was removable. Expensive.

Opinion: This is the best tele-zoom I've ever used. It is an improvement in every way over the original 100-400. It is sharper, faster focusing, more accurate, has better stabilization, and handles the 1.4x TC III well. However, the best feature for me is the 1m close focus (1/3 life size at 400mm), which lets me get closer to frogs than before. While the bigger faster super-teles have advantages, this is the best portable tele available for Canon. I've used the original 70-200 f/2.8L IS, 300f/4L, original 100-400L... the 100-400 mark II is better than all of them... except the 300/f4L is smaller/lighter. None of the other lenses I listed are bad (they are all excellent), but the 100-400 mark II is noticeably better.

Pros: Sharpness, tropicalization, lightning autofocus.

Cons: For now nothing a little bit the weight, but there is

Opinion: I've got it recently and I'm happy. Although I don't use 1.4x at the moment I'm happy on my 90D which already gives me 1.6. Nice nice blur. Robust construction, good rings. very fast focus. With the zoom adjustment ring you can adjust the "hardness" of the zumata, support for the stand and excellent light rails.

Pros: Construction, sharpness, stabilization. Lightning autofocus.

Cons: Nothing, in my opinion

Opinion: I used the previous great model for a long time and with satisfaction, but this is another planet. The yield is excellent even at full opening and does not decrease significantly even by mounting the 1.4X dupli. Very solid construction, really professional; ring for the tripod put in the right place, smooth and precise controls. On APS-C such as the 7D II it becomes a powerful but manageable 160-640 with which you can really do everything in the naturalistic field.

Pros: Excellent sharpness from edge to edge and evenly distributed throughout the focal excursion; excellent construction, extremely robust, relatively light, fast and precise AF, excellent tropicalization, circular diaphragm, the blurry is very pleasant beyond the focus plane... much less however in the previous area, really excellent the backlight seal, very well correct distortion, MMaF very contained.

Cons: In fact none or at least: in four years of use I have not yet found one.

Opinion: This is a very successful objective. I've had his forefather for a dozen years, a good target, but that's way superior to him in everything. I delayed buying it because I was a little skeptical about the construction and what to say... the very moment I held it in my hand the first time, and tried to vary the focal point, I immediately had to believe it again. Optically speaking he is only a very distant relative compared to his predecessor, to the point that this is not only superior to him in a more than manifest way but I would say that, also thanks to the many small constructive precautions that the first model did not have, between the two objectives the only things in common are only the focal excursion and brightness. The sharpness is really very high to the point that at the 300mm focal point, for example, it manages to exceed the performance of the 300/4 L IS. It is much heavier than its predecessor, about 300 grams, but the five-stop stabilizer ensures significantly higher performance, higher than the point that at 400 mm it is quietly photographed at 1/8 of a second freehand and with a minimum of attention you can go down even up to 1/4. Finally, the minimum focus distance, limited to only 0.98 meters, is very interesting, which allows you to get good close-ups up to an RR of about 1:3.
