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: Sharpness, colors, and image quality when docking

Cons: VERY disappointing AF compared to the cost of the lens

Opinion: My experience with these bianconi has always been bad, the quality when hooking is also good, unfortunately they have an inconsistency on the accuracy of focus (in my opinion shameful for the money that pays them). Absurdly my old 70-200 f4 was more accurate paired with a 350D than these super bright beasts. In sports they are a real disappointment, in the burst can make you 6 photos out of ten in focus as 6 out of 10 out of focus (among other things distant subjects are almost always wrong). I tried everything (70-200 f4 normal and stabilized/ 70-200 f2.8 smooth and stabilized first and second version), shipped almost all in service centers for further verification. My conclusion after a decade of photos is that the Focus Canon is a disillusionment, both in terms of the machine body and the lenses. In particular this 70-200 is perhaps the best of the lot, far from having a product worth the money spent.

Pros: Reliability, speed, colors, fire, everything

Cons: Weight

Opinion: Super Lens, maybe the best of all or almost. I came from the homonymous smooth. This has an amazing stabilizer and colors if possible even better. Someone says the hike is little and is better a 100-400 zoom. Maybe... the ideal would be to have them both. An EPR portraiture and indoor sports and one for outdoor sports and birdlife. Weighs but is well balanced.

Pros: All

Cons: If I have to say something negative is not very light.

Opinion: Well, I don't know what to add to all the comments you read about this lens. I can only say that by being able, I would always mount it on my room. I never smash it, for me it is the perfect lens to which you can not give up. Only regret that I have is not being able to try it and use it with a full-frame and exploit it even more because with an APS-C, I start from 112 mm and for this beautiful lens is a bit penalizing... For Avifauna is too short, but otherwise it's okay always... someone reproaches me for using it for landscapes and is right.. But I have to tell you.. I can't take it off! Not recommended, much more, inevitable! Greetings to all and good light.

Pros: sharpness, build quality, focal excursion, multiplicable, stabilized, tropicalised, beautiful lens

Cons: weight, but you know

Opinion: I do not know what else to say about this sacred monster ... it's true it's heavy (for this I did not give 10 but "only" 9, even if there was a 9.5 I would have given this as a vote) .rn absolutely stratospheric, sharpness to TA and for the whole focal excursion, stabilized by fear, even with multiplier 1.4 I enjoyed it. The colors are fantastic.rnI am absolutely satisfied with the purchase and I'm not worried about the weight: I did a whole weekend with this baby and I came out alive.rnCerto the price is challenging but if you think about the results and satisfactions that can give away, after a while you do not think about it anymore!
