Pros: Low price, fast and precise AF, sharp, non-CA, lightweight, construction

Cons: Nothing from lens itself, but tripod ring not included.

Opinion: This was my upgrade from the 70-300mm non-L. I don't know where to start: first I noticed that the construction is excellent, it deserves the "red-L-ring". The image quality is just fantastic, it can be used even at f/4 and the image isn't so soft like other lenses. The AF is very fast and very accurate. I can't complain about it's non-IS or just f/4 aperture, for this price it's just fantastic as it is. I wish that it would come with the tripod ring included. It can be used for portraits, wildlife and events.

Pros: less expensive (poor man pro tele lense); lightweight (perfect for travel); good sharpness; not-too-intimidating lens (good for candid)

Cons: slightly soft at 200mm (for the best result, take at 135mm f/4 or 200mm f/5.6); sometimes non IS affects shake-blur

Opinion: The lens is perfect for travel, & also perfect in term of price/quaility. The only thing you can't get is beautiful bokeh blur - it is not really necessary when we do landscape, reportage or even human interest portrait during travel (you could capture the environment background as a part of story, anyway). To me, combining with another lightweight 85mm f/1.8, or 135mm will be a wise choice. Just my 2 cents ;-). Www.budiharyantophoto.com

Pros: Fast, light and sharp

Cons: Absolutely nothing

Opinion: After making the court and pondering the purchase I took it home. I had tried it and fell in love with it immediately. Fast focus... sharpness from true L series. I prefer sports photography cycling and motocross .. and on apsc the distance from the subjects is excellent and for now I do not feel the need for more pushed focal lengths It is not stabilized but it was already known ... otherwise it was aimed at IS. The bianchetto that never disappoints.

Pros: Lightweight and very transportable; optically not unlike the brother f. 2.8 MK II that I own and that 9 times out of ten I leave at home to take this with me; Super AF.

Cons: Don't have it

Opinion: There's little to say about this lens: it's almost always mounted on my cameras. I prefer it to the 2.8 that although excellent and stabilized, most of the time when I need this focal length, the 4 is able to do the exact same job. At the price in which they are used, it is unthinkable not to have it in the backpack.

Pros: Sharp, lightweight, economical

Cons: Tires fade with time.

Opinion: The "smooth white" is a lens with an unattainable value for money. For day shots outdoors is a must-have: in such conditions you do not feel the need for stabilization. Extremely sharp and lightweight. Fast and precise focus and faithful colors. Used for sports photography with great satisfaction.
