Pros: Stunning image quality, perfect micro-contrast, excellent sharpness even at TA, impressive bokeh, incredible take-off, lightning-fast MAF, impeccable construction, fully usable with extenders, compact size making it a great travel companion, excellent 4-stop stabilization, fully usable handheld, perfect lens for sports, travel, nature, photojournalism and fashion photographers, fully compatible with Canon's new R-Series.

Cons: None, one of the best lenses Canon has ever produced.

Opinion: One of the best Supertele ever produced by Canon. The Canon EF 300 f2.8 IS II is the perfect travel Supertele (also intercontinental) thanks to its small size and thanks to the fact that it can be multiplied with very little IQ loss both with the 1.4x TC (insignificant IQ loss) and with the 2x TC (more present but fully usable IQ loss with satisfaction). The construction is impeccable, the tropicalization excellent. The lens has a large f2.8 aperture and offers ultra-high optical performance, outstanding image quality, and a relatively lightweight and durable design. It is, given its relatively low cost, one of the first Supercanvases that you buy and that, once you realize the IQ, that you keep. All the images taken show an extraordinary optical quality, the sharpness already at TA is striking, the creamy and perfect blur amazes, the absolute absence of any optical defect is surprising. The lens has all the professional selectors on the body and a generous and well-made lens hood and is sold with the usual hard case. The image quality remains amazing both with the TC 1.4x and 2x (I use version III in both cases) and this allows you to have a 300 f2.8, a 400 f4 and a 600 f5.6 with "little expense", which is priceless first and foremost for travel photographers (I use it in my African Safaris with immense satisfaction). The high-quality front glass element is a feast for the eyes. For owners of the Canon system, it is a must have. Lens with embarrassing optical quality.

Pros: AF Speed, Versatility (better fixed to use with extender than its bigger brothers), Weight, Blurry, Sharper than the new RF 100-300

Cons: Only flaw, Needs adapter for RF system (Works great)

Opinion: Great For nature photography, I prefer it over its older brothers since it is the sharpest of the 4, so it allows you to use the extenders with full versatility, for example I compared on you tube (Elia Dallari channel) the 300mm f2.8 II with 2x extender (600mm f5.6) vs the 600mm f4 II, the difference in Sharpness is really imperceptible at 500% the blur is slightly higher in the 600 f4 (it's the lens that blurs Most of all) but the 600mm f4 is slow to use handheld, bulky to carry, weighs almost 2 kg more, costs more, minimum focusing distance 4.5m compared to the 2 meters of the 300mm multiplied (600mm f5.6) for confident animals with the 300mm you can get closer and blur more. The 600f4 on the other hand is the lens that digests extenders the least for a physical matter (internal lens size with more glass). Also, nowadays, with cameras getting denser and denser in megapixels, focal length is not as important as it used to be. Today, versatility wins!

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.
