Pros: Blurred, sharpened, AF precision, cost (always important, but nothing compared to IS II or IS III)

Cons: Size, weight (compared to the last is III), original front lens cap, suitcase

Opinion: Before I took it, I was worried about size and weight. After using it for 2 months I can only talk about it well. The only thing that still keeps unsettling me are the size, the weight (for me) is quietly manageable and it is also possible to use freehand. I almost always use it that way and I'm using very little both tripod and monopod. Lenscoat accessories such as folding lampshades and neoprene caps are almost obligatory to replace the originals and save weight and a lot of space in the backpack. Practically useless the suitcase with which it is sold. The slightest focus distance makes it unhelpful on small birds, in that case better use it with 1.4x

Pros: Very powerful lens with excellent details, precise and fast AF, stabilised and accompanied by beautiful boken and colors to scream, very strong even with APS-C and 1, 4x

Cons: Unfortunately it is difficult to find spare parts in case of breakage, although in my opinion is a tank, the weight is remarkable but if you want the quality there are no alternatives.

Opinion: I tried it and wanted it strongly, and after almost two years I found it at a reasonable price, less than half of what was new, I tried it and I immediately fell in love, I took free hand and despite the weight I managed with good results. Now after four months is my pupil, and I recommend it to all those who love Super Tele. The weight is singular but it has my opinion the light equipment leave the time they find and forget easily, the heavy ones instead require commitment but have a merit never forget.

Pros: Good detail and speed of AF

Cons: Built in economic...

Opinion: The lens itself is fast and accurate and I can't say that it didn't create a feeling with this lens. Negative instead my judgement regarding the mechanics. I state that I had the old version for about 10 years. Obviously heavier but much more robust and reliable. After a little indirect bump and not the lens but the reflex caused by my inattention while I raised from under the table reflex and lens, I found myself with the magnesium barrel broken in half. The exact point of rupture is the graft for the famous and unnecessary gel filter. The magnesium right in this part is really scarce and thin and then breaks like a breadsticks. I do not imagine at this point the weakness of the II version in which precisely in that area have made hole to insert function keys, weakening even more the part. I strongly advise against the purchase for those who use it for work. Risk finding yourself with the lens split in half. Chiriku

Pros: construction, bright, fantastic detail wide open, very good stabilization system, to tropical precisone AF, AF speed awesome, fantastic bokeh, limiters, selectable AF excellently designed, with 1.4X wide open is still resounding with the 2X still great Also on APS-C (the limit here the problem is the noise pollution on APC-C: we are at 1920mm).

Cons: I have not found, it should be willing to force to find one I would say that the Canon instead or even better than the suitcase, a backpack should provide dedicated.

Opinion: This lens is a tank! As soon as you pick up what you see is solid, we are at levels PRO PRO. In addition to all the benefits summarized above what to say? On the field is a unique reliability, a lens sniper! Limiters for a fantastic AF speed AF amazing, although already in the 5.5 meters to infinity are in speed and accuracy to scream. You will never feel short of millimeters and you will also be versatile, better than the 800mm of the Canon 800 5.6, for me too binding. The 600mm lights are perfect for birds and in particular for the birds, but if you do not have your limits and always look away and then put it on the 1, 4X and bright 840mm 5.6, no animal can svuggirvi. The 2X still has good results. With the 7D and the 2X Kenko PRO 300 AF is precise and quick, even instantaneous even in dim light. When I say lightning in low light is because I tried so: Aperture F8, Shutter Speed: 1/5 of a second, ISO 5000. Per is the minimum distance of 5.5 meters at the moment I have never found their backs to the wall that I could not shoot. I can only give you a 10 and a lens to praise dream, though it is designed for professionals, but for an amateur like me is worth even more!

Pros: Bright, with a striking, remarkable detail blurred separation between planes

Cons: Dimensions, weight, minimum focusing distance (5.5 meters)

Opinion: Outstanding optics that gives incredible detail even at full aperture. The stabilizer works very well, although the use of categorical almost door-to-use tripod poco.rnL 'AF is quite fast, it becomes lightning activating the limiter distanza.rnL' I have used with great satisfaction with the canon 1.4 extender XIII without noticing decay of image or the speed of AF, while with the 2xIII I was not very satisfied ... I would use it only for dire emergency because, in my opinion, kill a little 'optics, which in this case, does not deserve to be killed just. : DrnNel complex-a dream come true for me!
