Pros: excellent image quality even wide open, very accurate and fast AF, build like a tank, very effective image stabilizer

Cons: large, heavy, expensive

Opinion: Despite its high price the upgrade form the non-IS version or version I of the IS-model is worth the money. The image quality is great, tack sharp and with high contrast throughout the zoom range, even wide open. AF ist blazingly fast and accurate. The new lens hood design (with release knob and structured finish) is very appealing. The IS is somewhat noisy (especially when it starts working) but works excellent. The construction is outstanding: full metal body, no extending tubes, weather sealed (the non-IS has no weather sealing). Also very usefull is the reduced minimum working distance of only 120cm. Weight and price are high, but there is no other 70-200 zoom that can keep up with this excellent lens.

Pros: Excellent image quality at all focal lengths and at TA, excellent contrast (thanks to fluorite)

Cons: I have not found any in 10 years of use. It's short for photographing birdlife, but it's great for sports

Opinion: I bought it in 2010 with a trade-in with part of the previous film kit, given the cost and I immediately appreciated the image quality, the blurred, the colors at all focal lengths. Excellent in sports (football, rugby, synchronized swimming), surpassed only by 300 2.8 and for situations where you need larger focal lengths from 100-400. Very useful in weddings to capture portraits on the fly and isolate the subjects. It was the first fluorite lens of my kit then came the 100-400 and the 300, but it occupies a central place in my heart.

Pros: Very high sharpness (extraordinary for a zoom), excellent seal even with the 1.4X II extender, Fast and precise AF, excellent construction, extreme robustness, sublime blurry (with the same focal point better than that of 135/2 L), excellent stabilizer (freehand easily used 1/4 sec. at 200 mm), circular diaphragm, accurate tropicalization, very well contained distortion, only good flare resistance... but with 19 lens groups it's frankly hard to do better.

Cons: Basically none because its only limits, namely size and weight, are the obvious consequence of what is said in the PRO regarding construction and robustness.

Opinion: In my humble opinion, it is the reference point in its category. I have tried for a long time all the 70-200 canon (and not only), and this condenses in itself all the numerous strengths of the various objectives that preceded it. I use it, like all my objectives, only on slide (Velvia 50 clearly) and in projection - where to understand only Kodak projectors equipped with Leica optics - its extraordinary qualities, I say literally, shine with their own light ... I very much doubt that I can ever even touch on the idea of separating myself from it.

Pros: L series, aperture f/2.8, sharpness, stabilizer up to 4 stops, robustness, safety in use.

Cons: Weigh-in but get used to it...

Opinion: A stratospheric lens! My favorite, at the moment, for portrait and portrait set. Scream sharpness and orgasm-blurred! The only flaw is the weight but you get used to it; on the other hand, it is an L-series optics with very high performance. With my digital Canon FF dialogues with wonder! A lens that every photographer, who has Canon as a kit, absolutely must possess!!! Grade 10/10.
