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: I'd say everything

Cons: It doesn't hold up the filters (UV) in my case, otherwise nothing

Opinion: Gorgeous goal, awesome AF speed and with the 7D Mark ii in my opinion the AF is something unique. Only uncomfortable but it is really a crap, the system of release of the trepia bracket is a bit uncomfortable. Unfortunately initially I used it with a protective UV filter as I always did, but I then discovered that the cause of soft photos and micromoves was just him, once removed is I could appreciate its great quality, the low weight makes it really very as versatile as zooming, you won't be disappointed if you buy it. L-series always a guarantee.

Pros: Image quality, sharpness, focus distance, Af speed, stratospheric even with extender 1.4XIII

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: Just taken and immediately tested, great optics in everything I do not find any flaws, if I just have to then I can make a note on the blurred that is not the best, but only because I am used to the 600mm canon f4, I am really satisfied to have it in my kit, I gave back the 400mm f5.6 and I was afraid of being disappointed and instead I was happy with the choice, even at 400mm at full opening is in my opinion superior to the good old 400 5.6, in short I highly recommend it to those who want to take naturalistic or sports photography.

Pros: All

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: Maybe I've been a bit drastic in Pros and Cons but things are pretty much the same. Of Course that starts from 4.5, of course it is heavy but it is a 100-400 of great quality and worth it. For so many years I preferred the 70-200/2.8 But if I have to carry a cannon behind then that is at least a 400. I compare with 70-200 because I will make a similar use and, from the first jokes, I already see that it is not inferior as quality, indeed. It Produces the blur even better at focal lengths than the 200, not fathomable with the 70-200 of course. The difference in brightness can be a problem up to 200 about but in the daytime does not prevent anything, in the evening or indoors in theaters or similar the light is always on the framed part that, by force of things, is less than that framed with 70-200. It Also lends itself to all other fields of application where these focals are used in their own way (and not improper as I do). As definition and sharpness I didn't really think it could even be higher than the classic biancone. I have taken it from very little but, at the moment, I am fully satisfied.

Pros: Extraordinary sharpness and weight. Unattainable by any other objective at the moment on the market of Reflex

Cons: Hard to find

Opinion: Undoubtedly the best tele in Reflex field for several years to this part. Extraordinary sharpness at any aperture, construction and exceptional materials. The weight is very low and allows you to work anywhere. I assure you that I used it even in climbing wall it was a lot of magnesite. The cost must not mislead because in my opinion, in view of the excellent tool that is delivered, is even underestimated. Congratulations Canon!
