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: Being Canon

Cons: For now, none

Opinion: I wanted to replace the Tamron 100 - 400 Di VC USD. In short, the difference in quality is perceptible in all conditions. I take aeronautical photos and often push to extreme focal lengths, I have been able to see that at 400mm it has no comparison with the Tamron which already from 300mm suffers from excessive softness of the images. Super stabilization even handheld. Of course, the weight does not play in favor of the Canon and the price, of course, is not at all comparable (the Tamron costs 1200€ less). On the other hand, that extra stop in favor of the Canon plays a fundamental factor in favor of the Canon optics. I use it on both an APSC and a full-frame. On the APSC I noticed a greater decay of quality at the upper extreme focal length, but I think it depends on the size of the sensor.

Pros: Sharpness; Compactness, image stabilization, autofocus, robustness.

Cons: Very short bracket; weight not too well distributed.

Opinion: I've been using this lens for about a year on an r7 on which I alternate this lens and a 300 2.8 ii. The autofocus has positively surprised me especially those few times I have used it on r5; Image stabilization is excellent in combination with the ibises of the R7/R5. The sharpness is impressive even if less punchy than the new RF 100 500. With the 1.4x iii extender it maintains a good autofocus even if the image quality suffers if you leave the aperture open at f8; while if you close to f11 it gains a little and the photo becomes very expendable again. The thing I love most about this lens is the compactness that makes it adaptable to any camera backpack. One thing that immediately annoyed me is the length of the bracket which is too short to make it easy to carry; But it is at least removable (which is not possible on the new 200 800 RF). This is for me a fantastic lens that despite its "age" continues to be one of the best of the canon l series and that still leaves me no reason to switch to the new 100 500 which, although sharper and slightly lighter, remains too dark for my use especially for the low resistance to high ISO of my r7, whose file above ISO 3200 is difficult to use.

Pros: Everything you could want from a lens - build quality, sharpness, autofocus

Cons: To date, after two years, none, at least for the use I make of it

Opinion: I bought this lens two years ago and it was money well spent. Used with the mono-foot, for architectural photos, it is a razor; It must be said that for this genre the shooting values are of absolute safety but, the stabilization, if corroborated also by a more solid support of the arms, makes it an instrument of great satisfaction. With "him" I never shoot freehand. The door on the hood is very comfortable, because lowering it allows you to rotate any circular filter. It is "cost" but, spread over the years, the economic outlay is amply repaid by the satisfactions that are derived from it.
