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: Excellent performance at all focal points

Cons: Absurd locking system

Opinion: Tested on 1dx mkII and R6, even with ext 1.4 shines for autofocus speed and optical performance, in my opinion much better than its predecessor. One aspect that I find really embarrassing is the ring locking, with the long and much less practical stroke than the cursor one installed, for example, on the 24-105 series 2. I would also have liked an internal zoom system, such as the Sony 200-600, but you can't have it all at first glance.

Pros: Optical quality

Cons: Weight, footprint and price

Opinion: There's not much to say about one of the best canvases on the market... Quality at all focal points, in all respects. Only "against" that I find are the considerable weight, the clutter (it's not exactly compact...) and the high price... but on the other hand quality is paid for and also deserves some sacrifice of practicality, especially to these focal points that can be left at home if not strictly necessary.

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.
