Pros: Weight, dimensions, appearance, solidity, sharpness, bokeh, colors

Cons: Not received.

Opinion: Bought a year and a half ago, used (practically new) here on the market, 400 euros. R6, adapter, DxO PL5: it is my combination for portraits for events on stage or in any case for distances greater than 4m. It returns portraits in my opinion extremely pleasant. At TA the bokeh is exceptional. On DxO I have to bring the microcotrasto to -40 to overcome the extreme sharpness and to smooth the imperfections of faces not made up. Distortion and chromatic aberrations are absent after two clicks on DPP4 or DxO. Like most Canon lenses, it returns faithful colors that match my taste. That it is not stabilized is an advantage: it is light. For the portraits I do, they are, at least, at 1/250s. Even with adapter, it does not weigh / clutter more than a tot. Well balanced on both R6 and RP. Together with the EF135mm F2.0L and 'went to replace the excellent EF70-200mm F / 4L IS in my kit. Choice that I have not yet regretted. I felt the need for a zoom on one occasion, during a performance on a huge stage where it would take a 70-300mm to follow everything. But, I know, they haven't done a 70-300 F2.0/2.8 :) yet. I obviated with 3 fixed and crop. Being black, unlike canon zooms (white-white) guarantees a certain discretion. As well as the fact of being 40mm shorter than the white.

Pros: Lightweight, sharp, bright, yield and price used

Cons: The stabilizer, but it would be heavier and perhaps even less performing

Opinion: I took it about six months ago, when it was still in production. Although I used it little, having mainly Nikon equipment, I have to dive that surprised me very positively and I think it is at least on par if not even superior to the emblazoned Nikon AFD 180. On my 6D it goes so beautifully that it is the only lens I decided to keep (having a gap in the Nikon equipment). The stabilizer would certainly be comfortable (being a 200) but it would increase weight and number of lenses and probably would be at the expense of quality. Considering the price of the used (in line with the 180 Nik) I consider it a great purchase.

Pros: Light, bright, razor sharp, cheap, etc., etc.

Cons: Perhaps the lack of iS, but it would increase in weight and volume; for a perspective that is born for the portrait is fine like that.

Opinion: I bought this lens to make a comparison with the biancone 2.8 having I all zoom and having never had the opportunity to try a fixed and make a direct comparison between two lenses made by the same house, with similar technologies and quality at the same level. Well, I think it's a really well-made lens. The 70-200 offers more vibrant colors, then crunchy, but this fixed 200 has a cream that seasons it really unique (which does not mean less sharpness!) The bokeh is something very special, if you then consider that it was born to make portrait and that therefore you find yourself photographing with a 200 something close, it goes without saying that by optical law the blurred back becomes something similar to magic. Light and space-saving does not make you be intrusive with the subject photographed. I have often used it as the only lens in family gatherings (outdoors, I mean) and it has allowed to create albums of memories that are often browsed with pleasure. If it is cheap and you are interested in the type of lens, with its fixed limits, in my opinion it is not to be missed.

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!
