Pros: sharpness, good for almost everything

Cons: just to short for birds

Opinion: A very good telephoto lens with an average circulation of high F2.8 brightness . Those with extenders and crop factoor body 's above average telephoto reach fetches a good image quality . Suitable for virtually all work areas when it comes to capturing details. Consider sport, portrait, landscape and wildlife . Also easy to handle despite its weight with a shoulder strap you can walk the whole day .the sharpest lens I ever had.. With 1.4 converter still sharp , with just under 2.0 but still usable .

Pros: Sharpness, price

Cons: Weight, spare parts, not stabilized

Opinion: I use it with the Sony A7RIII via adapter so the AF side doesn't guarantee me the same performance as a canon body, however the AF is reliable and fast enough. Sharp side solves the 42 megapixels already at TA well to become very sharp already at F3.2. An excellent optics. Weight is important and the age of the project makes it difficult to find spare parts. The lack of stabilizer makes it difficult to get under certain shooting speeds by penalising situations with little light. Obviously if you buy such an optics today it is because of the affordable price despite the performance from F2.8 line L. Still a valid choice.

Pros: Sharpness, price of the used, smooth and multiplied speed

Cons: Given the price of the new or used I would say only the weight

Opinion: I bought it used at a good price . I use it with the kenko 2x pro glued night and day. The quality is excellent and quietly compares with optics that cost as much as a studio apartment. Considering the production date and for those who can't spend so much this is the alternative to have a 300 2.8 excellent and a 600 f5.6 multiplied by quality that from the best to f8 and a soft hair to 5.6. I replaced my 400 5.6 just because I'm a shed photographer and because 200mm more i'm comfortable. Not recommended for traveling photography because of its weight that makes itself felt especially with pro bodies. The stabilizer at that price can't be asked at all but thanks to its brightness and the possibility to match pro bodies that can travel even to 3200 iso with excellent quality I would say you do not miss it because you can use times of Security.

Pros: Optical quality, sharpness, blurry

Cons: Only the weight

Opinion: I bought it used three years ago and it's really great. I used it for sports photography (football, rugby, minirugby) both smooth and with extender (1.4 II and 2 III). The quality and the AF are really good and precise. The sharpness is almost upsetting and remains good with the 1.4, while losing a bit with the 2x. It's a real tank. I accidentally fell into the water about 3 years ago while photographing the fooches. Brought to repair, disassembled and cleaned the lens is back again and works perfectly.

Pros: f / 2.8 and AF speed

Cons: MF electronic, weight, not tropical conditions and lack of stabilization.

Opinion: Optics definitely dated but still fully usable by and large very beautiful and usable nitidezza.rnColori with multipliers without large losses of unique risoluzione.rngli defects on my way to photograph are the lack of stabilization freehand and given the weight is felt and lack of tropicalizzazione.rnAttualmente Canon stopped producing spare parts and therefore given that even in manual focus the AF motor is used to focuse, if you were to break remains unusable.
