Pros: A lot

Cons: Little

Opinion: I don't understand the criticisms of this excellent lens. The smooth is not even remotely comparable, let alone in low light conditions. There are also those who prefer the version F/4 and the thing, weight apart, amazes me. The F/4 never achieves its result. Version II is higher for AF speed. On the central sharpness are practically identical, on the edges it maintains more the II but nothing dramatic. The colors are a bit warmer on the version I but more contraended on the II. Compare the images in post to believe. The real problem is that Canon does not provide assistance on products no longer in production for seven years. Which also does not concern only this optics and which is not from Canon.

Pros: ----

Cons: It's not worth buying

Opinion: The price difference between this lens and the next version is lowering terribly. There are 70-200 is II to €1000 in perfect condition. What is the point of spending €200 less, for a perspective that is largely demonstrating its age? It is sharp if you use 12mpx machines, if you climb you see its objective limits. He weighs like a kid, and the stabilizer makes a tremendous noise. By the way if they also make them pay used because they are rare to find, and therefore there is risk that you find them even at €900. Absolutely not recommended in my opinion the purchase. Much better than the smooth version, also because shooting at 1 \ \ 60 and the like with a 70-200 I find it a bit... useless? If you are doing sport at 1 \ \ 60 The images are moved to you because the object moves, if you are doing stationary portraits where you can use 1 \ \ 60... Do not use the 70-200. I do not know, I repeat how personally I find the difference in cost with version II widely justifiable, even in the perspective of future resalability. I have yet to understand this obsession with the stabilizer, it seems that people do not live without, when for me is really useless. More expense, more weight and less quality only for the stabilizer?

Pros: Sharp, stabilized, robust, does not extend zooming, colors, AF

Cons: Weight, kidney to be given away to have it

Opinion: I had the smooth, excellent version, given away to some fixed including the 100l and went back to the 70-200 2.8... Is gentlemen this is the lens, the one you need to have in outfit without any doubt! I read that it is not as sharp as the smooth, but I find them really equivalent and both to the height of the 100 L macro is, which makes me suspect of variability of specimens, I want to point out that I bought them both in the center canon and both I did do AF calibration, to get snipers. Sharpness at the top apart from giving unique colors, warm, deep, vibrant, excellent out of the planes, fast AF, tropicalization, certainty of the result every time you shoot... Its qualitative stamp is always present, at all focal lengths, you will always take the shot at home. Only cons is the weight... 1.5 kg of glass are many, I decided that I prefer to bring those kg rather than lose a photo, the is on this lens is indispensable, I shoot at 1/60 freehand to 200, all clear without micro-blur, I would say evidence widely exceeded! Sooner or later I'll switch to the is II version, for simple upgrade, but this is already a really high level.

Pros: Tropicalization, quality, stabilizer, bright, blurred, robust

Cons: Weight, not sharp (but nothing dramatic), old-fashioned stabilizer

Opinion: It was the first "pro" optic of my dear friend, spending a fortune at the time when I used the rare occasions that lent him to me and my love was immediately; Subsequently also because of the many criticisms of the forums and with the release of the series II he sold it. After a few years I have just had the opportunity to buy it at a price drastically compared to the average value of the sales here on the forums (taken at the price of a stabilized whitewash used), which say to me like, handsome, very colors Thick cake, not the best of the sharpness that is, especially when compared to the new version but nothing catastrophic this I tend to say !. The stabilizer is not the maximum covers up to two maximum stops; It's heavy on the right, but at the end of the fair the files are beautiful.rn honest, if I did not find the opportunity at a higher price I would not have taken it, under the conditions for how I bought it I can say I'm very satisfied ! rn

Pros: tropicalization, quality ', stabilizer, bright, beautiful blurred, robust

Cons: high price, heavy but the quality 'pay

Opinion: I bought it around 2005, overused and I continue to use it professionally, from fashion to the outdoor theater where the stabilizer and 'fundamental, it has not disappointed me so much that I never even felt the need to try the series despite 2 all men speak well. rnHa "character", and on my own this and 'the most' important thing in a obiettivo.rnFa part of my basic kit and do not think to change it. rn
