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: 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.

Pros: Great in everything, size, weight, AF speed, stabilization and last but not least optical performance

Cons: Knowing the sacrifice of the weight to be carried with you, nothing.

Opinion: I had already tried it before taking the f4 IS and discarded for the weight and bulk in the bag, but I already knew that sooner or later I would buy it and so it was. What to say that has not already been said about this splendid optics. Sharp from TA and at all focal lengths, exemplary construction. I arrive at him after leaving the stabilized white, of which I can only say good things, but after so many perplexities, as mentioned, for the weight and bulk, just grafted into the car and taken some test shots, you realize the difference that passes with the little brother and it is not just the extra stop. Tested with the Teleplus Kenko Pro 300 DGX 1.4x and 2x I noticed very little loss of sharpness and speed. The stabilization is very efficient and helps a lot on stationary subjects, the AF speed is exceptional. He wins hands down on the other focal peers who preceded him.

Pros: construction, sharpness, speed, precision, yield, price on used

Cons: heavy and bulky

Opinion: It is an excellent lens, built like a tank and with the perfect rendering, fast and precise, a sports lens of excellence. It's big and heavy, which is why I sold it. Surpassed by the RF model that weighs half a KG less and takes up so much less space in the bag, not without compromises (less robustness, zoom ring fludity and multipliability ...). It shares EVERYTHING with the 3 series, so spare parts will be available for a long time, buy it serene on the used!

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.
