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.

Cons: Weight

Opinion: A lens that if you can carry around, does not make you regret fatigue. I used it extensively for sports photography, it allowed me to easily hook subjects at 100kmh at full aperture and churn out sharp photos with a beautiful blur. Always used on mirrorless, unfortunately it was heavily unbalanced by the adapter and here comes its only cons: weight. As much as I loved it in portraiture, I did without it because of the weight and bulk. Lens that I still loved with a fast and precise af, very sharp at all focal lengths and with a fantastic bokeh.

Pros: Exceptional colors, Sharpness, Stabilizer, AF, Tropicalized, bokeh.

Cons: The sacrifice of weight

Opinion: It is an exceptional lens for sharpness, at all apertures and focal lengths, of excellent build quality, with excellent stabilization that effectively helps in shooting and a very fast Autofocus. Its only fault is the weight it affects during transport and use. Weight to which we need to get used to and train the muscles, but the results obtained from him, amply repay the effort. You can easily work with it freehand, thanks to the excellent stabilization, but a monopod is always better to have it with you. The cost? I took it used on rce at a great price just over 1000 euros. It is one of those optics that must be part of your photographic kit, suitable for every photographic genre, from landscape and portraitist to sport and birdlife. It has the advantage, unlike the RF counterpart that increases the focal range does not increase in size, the movement of the lenses is all internal. The zoom dial is nice and precise. It is a lens suitable for use even for videomakers where obviously freehand use is not recommended and you have to rely either on a stabilizer (for example the Dji Ronin RS3 holds it well) or on the tripod. The hood can be mounted upside down on itself so as not to have the bulk in the backpack. It's a Top lens and deserves my 10

Pros: Build and optical quality, AF, Stabilizer, Collar

Cons: Dimensions, cost and weight

Opinion: You either love it or you hate it. I had several 70-200 including this one and love never snapped. It has a crazy, fast and very precise AF. It follows the subject even if it moves fast or if there is little light. The stabilizer does an excellent job considering also the tonnage of the lens. The tripod collar is free as well as the hood and bag. Qualitatively it looks like a dynamite-proof bazooka for how well it is done and looks solid. The cost is a considerable obstacle that relegates it mainly to professionals, to those who work can be included in the expense. Optical quality such as sharpness and aberrations here we are at the TOP for the first and non-existent the second. It can be multiplied and duplicated without batting an eyelid. What I think penalizes it in amateur use are size and weight. If I have to work I carry 1.5kg with me without problems as a work tool but if I have to go on vacation to have half a full backpack with only one lens and have 1.5kg of dead weight, well they make themselves felt a lot.

Pros: AF speed and accuracy, sharpness, exceptional colors

Cons: The weight, but it is a small price compared to the results that can be obtained

Opinion: Seeing the photos here on the forum I immediately thought that I could not have it. I bought the used 70-200 (really little or nothing) for an almost ridiculous figure. Mounted on R6 and now I don't take it off anymore. Crazy colors, AF that does not miss a shot, sharpness to make an impression. Yes, the weight is felt, but every time you put your eye in the viewfinder you forget the fatigue. I will not go into technical details, there are already so many reviews that talk about it competently. Surely a lens that gives a lot of satisfaction, after trying it is difficult to leave it at home.
