Pros: Sharpness at every aperture, awesome to use even freehand, AF speed, stabilization, blurred, color, aesthetic effectiveness

Cons: If we want the weight but it is lighter than the EF 200 f2L, minimum focus distance

Opinion: Is a lens that hardly leaves insensitive and indifferent, is a beast, AF fast, well stabilized, use it quietly freehand, use it to f 2.8 is a joy, the blur gives emotions (is different from that of 200 F2L but the 300 has a rendition of the detail higher than any distance), excellent with the multipliers Canon x 1.4 and X2, Pesa, certainly weighs but less than the 200 f2L, the research on the materials you hear. The only my gripe is the minimum distance of focus, of course depends on the optical pattern (and you can safely use with extension tubes so much is the "reserve" of detail that has in the tank), I dare not imagine what it would be capable if it could focus at 1 metre or 1 metre and a half... I use it on my 6D, I used it on the Canon 5DSR and on the Sony A7RIII and A7III, it exploits every type of sensor.

Pros: Extreme sharpness, chromatic rendition, very solid construction, balancing of the masses, use of the Extender 1, 4x III without loss of quality, even with the 2x III maintains a surrender that arouses marvel. AF that does not slow down with the extenders.

Cons: The cost, but the quality has its price, you know...

Opinion: I had the L is version and I had the opportunity to make the transition to version II just before the holidays, taking a lens in perfect condition and very little used. Possessing already the two Canon Extender III series, the spring that gave me the push to make the transition was the quality that this optics shows in every occasion in conjunction with the two extenders. You have in fact three lenses of wide use and high quality: 300/2.8, 420/4 and 600/5.6. The proof of the facts did not betray the expectations: the optics is fantastic smooth, but with the extenders it becomes a real system that covers the most used focal lengths for naturalistic photos. Needless to say that I am more than satisfied with the choice, because the lens is more manageable than the first version and can be used quietly freehand also with camera bodies equipped with sensors with high number of pixels. In this album are collected the shots made using the Canon 1, 4x and 2x series III Extenders: https://www.flickr.com/photos/henry62/albums/72157670550452017 While in this you can find some shots just made with the Eos 5ds R: https:// www.flickr.com/photos/henry62/albums/72157698966515791

Pros: Optical performance, materials quality, AF speed, weight.

Cons: The Price

Opinion: Is my first telephoto lens so I can't make comparisons with other lenses in its class. I use to work in sports and it was love at first sight, it can hardly do without. Constructive level is outstanding, with materials worthy of a series L, same thing for optical performance than on the TOP, files gives 1DX Fund AF fast and accurate. The only drawback of this 300 mm 2.8 IS II is the price, €6500 are truly many, even if you use it for work it is not easy to write off a charge like that, then I dare say a luxury for the few.

Pros: optical performance, af speed, lofty building, manageability

Cons: but the price you pay

Opinion: I had the first ef 300 f2.8 the fantastic goal, but the transition to this 300 and 'difficult to match to a rise I particularly appreciated the handling and the ability to use it freehand about even the stabilizer 4-stop, rapid in focus an exceptional combination with the eOS 5 mark iv, only flaw the price

Pros: quality optics

Cons: latch bracket a little short

Opinion: I own a few days, but I was really impressed by the quality of this lens. No multipliers of course its best but I must grant him an exalted sharpness also multiplied (iii series with extender). With 2x autofocus loses accuracy resulting difficult to use for fast-moving subjects. I use it both with 5d mark iii that with 7d mark ii. The stabilizer is definitely one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of using. All with a very low weight.
