Pros: Light, crisp, price, speed maf, yield.

Cons: Perhaps the lack of the stabilizer (for those who use it). Not very versatile? of course, it's a fixed and you know it before you buy it.

Opinion: I was undecided between this lens and the 70/200 2.8 but, considering the weight and use I had to make of it I preferred the fixed. Mounted on Canon 5DIII I can use it for an entire afternoon without blaming the slightest tiredness, mounted on Canon 700D I find myself with a 320/2.8 and, under normal conditions, I struggle to distinguish the shots between the two machines. On the 5DIII, with the self-focus menu set to the right, i do not miss a shot in sports photos (riding), on the 700D I have some more difficulties for the limits of the car's af. I also have a 135/2 and the yield is absolutely comparable. Taken used for about 400€, if you do not need the greater versatility of the 70/200, I think you can not ask more of this lens. Highly recommended.

Pros: Sharpness, bokeh, colors, size, cost

Cons: nothing

Opinion: The versatility of this lens is not its strong point, but perhaps it remains the only sore point. If a person knows what he wants, he should also understand that this remains one of the most misunderstood optics in the entire Canon catalog, until then you try it. If you attend an event with other photographers everyone will ask "what optics is it?" "but is it 135L?". and no, it is the excellent 200mm, a lens that few know and few know how to appreciate. It has a bokeh that in my opinion is magical, very pasty, better than the 70-200 2.8, also it is indiscreet and small, so it is not the usual brick to carry around! For 5 years he has been accompanying my kit and I honestly used it also in naturalistic with excellent results in poor light conditions! The focus is very fast and precise, and last thing, in my opinion it is beautiful, the larger front lens of the barrel is a pleasure to clean and admire every time you take off the cap!

Pros: Affordable cost, 200 mm actual not as in the 70 -200 2.8, light, discreet, good sharpness, good boket.

Cons: it is not easy to use a fixed 200 mm for those who are used to zooming, I often use fixeds, it is not tropicalized, it is not stabilized.

Opinion: If you find a 70-200 2.8 and showy too heavy, then it is the optics for you, if instead you do not have these limits with a hawthorn, you do not take it, I prefer it to zoom but it is a matter of tastes, I read that reviews of serious online sites do not recommend it, because it is less sharp than white is not stabilized and is not a more comfortable zoom. Compared to the hawthorn I say this, it weighs and costs half is not obvious, the sharpness for portraits is enough and advances, vignette less, and other defects are minimized. In the end with the hawthorn you use at the focals 135 200mm (which are then not 200mm actual) so just see which of the two you prefer and take either this or the 135.

Pros: Materials, handling, sharpness and color rendering.

Cons: But what "against"?

Opinion: I've wanted this lens for years. After deciding to abandon the zooms (except the practical 24-70 L F4, which will remain in the kit for a long time), I found what I call "the occasion": purchased used at RCE in Padua, practically new, I tested it for some shots on the 5D Mk. III : in post production I said "what is it for ?". Files that are exciting in terms of color rendering and sharpness. The 135mm, the Lord of the Red ring, has a very good competitor. Soon I will use it for portraits, where I am convinced will not disappoint me. Vote 10 full.

Pros: everything: great canvas, with the 90D equals a 320mm 2.8, light, handy, very fast MAF.

Cons: Maybe the slightest distance of MAF, but I took it to photograph from afar, up close I have the 100 2.8 IS USM Macro.

Opinion: I bought it used at 450 euros, it came perfect and I started using it with the 60D. I also took the TC 2x Canon II version and it becomes a good 400 the maximum I had with the 90D, instant MAF, excellent blur, colors that do not require post production. I come from 30 years of analogue in which you should not miss the exposure and then even now with digital if I'm careful as before I have no need for post production except for the crop that the 90D allows well (see photos of frogs, crop to 0.3-0,4). It's like having a 400 2.8 on full frame of 20 Mpx. With its brightness it does not need thousands of ISOs and therefore I do not need amazing ISOs, those of the Canon 60D, 6D and 90D are also too many. I rarely use 1600. Great purchase that I would do with my eyes closed. Very recommended.
