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: All without exception!

Cons: Nothing!

Opinion: Great lens, great tele all do. If you work in situations of adequate brightness, it is his death. I use it mainly for sports, it is not excessively heavy and bulky, we are about equal to a 70-200 2.8, even when the barrel is completely out, it does not unbalance too much. Quite another thing than its predecessor (pompone) that with the barrel out became an unbalanced brick out of measure. The step forward in terms of yield is enormous, even the stabilizer works really well finally, vignette a bit 'at full aperture and / or on longer focal lengths but the result is not bad to tell the truth ... and cmq correctable in two clicks to the pc ... or directly in the camera if you shoot in jpeg. Definitely recommended!!

Pros: All

Cons: Maybe a little heavy

Opinion: Spectacular optics for sharpness and quality. He loses very little even with the teleconverter 1.4. The hood is also very practical. If I were to find a defect (if you can call it that) it is the weight that in wandering photographic hunting is felt, but it is endured for the final yield. Used on a tripod it gives the best, even if on bright days you can easily shoot freehand

Pros: All!

Cons: Nothing!

Opinion: I bought this lens 2 and a half years ago for 1600 euros, an exceptional price for such a lens. Today it also costs more than it cost at the exit. Used at first with a 6D and later with the R5. In both cases it proved to be a fantastic lens, with the mirrorless in question it does its best, taking advantage of a camera with AF clearly superior to 6D. I carried it with me in my backpack in all the picnics I did, even in the mountains. Spectacular rendering and sharpness at full aperture, both for fauna, birdlife and landscapes, the quality of this lens is at the top among the zoom superteles of this category, and I say this without the slightest doubt to be denied. The construction is impeccable, robust and very reliable. In naturalistic I have, every now and then, combined the TC 1.4 and, multiplied, does not lose much yield, although, as for all zooms, it is preferable to use it without TC to have the highest quality. The zoom adjustment ring works very well. The hood supplied is also excellent. After taking the R5 and with the release of the 100-500, which has 100 mm more, I started to think about whether it was really worth selling it or not. Eventually, after I was offered 200 euros more than I had paid for it in 2019, I decided to part with it to have a native RF lens like the 100-500. I hope I never regret it! Objects are only material means, but I really reluctantly separated myself from this lens.
