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: Surprising sharpness, autofocus, color yield, compact and light enough, value for money

Cons: It's not tropicalized

Opinion: Excellent lens, which on Canon 6d gives beautiful results in terms of sharpness and color rendering. The first time I tried it I was surprised by the sharpness of the image (perhaps it's my lucky specimen) since someone complained that it is not so. It is quite light and compact for its category, great for landscapes, for portraits also but it would be better to opt for the stabilized version. Unfortunately it is not tropicalized, so if it starts to rain, even slightly, you have to have a few more precautions. Apart from this last observation, it's a real L-series

Pros: Autofocus, excellent IQ with closed diaphragms, beautiful colors, small and light for a 70-200, price in the used

Cons: Not sharp at f 4 on aps-c, the lens stopped working on its own after a few months

Opinion: Found in the used less than a year ago, recent lens (although the project is from the 90s), purchased in store by the previous owner (user of the forum), in October left me on foot during a trip to Spain. It wasn't in the rain, it didn't take dust, it didn't fall, it just stopped working. The entire focus system is locked in both automatic and manual mode and repairs will cost me much of the initial price of the lens. Now, I understand the bad luck, but to think that a Chinese copy of the 50 f1.8 cost 40 euros to which I did everything still goes after 3 years while this lens "L" of Canon died after 10 months of even intensive use puts a certain anger. To the face of reliability. In itself it is a good lens and has great value. It's not as sharp as some reviews write, at f4 on aps-c (18mpx) it definitely does better than the sigma 17-50 f2.8 (which costs the new half). Minimize focus distance that can be improved. Abnormal lampshade that I would have gladly thrown in the trash. Very beautiful colors. From my point of view this was an enlightening experience that made me understand two things: 1. The infamous "L" take slaps from third-party lenses on aps-c and investing in these optics only makes sense if you plan a switch to full frame. 2. According to these clowns if you want a quality product or go out between 1000 and 3000 euros or settle for designs that are at least 15 years old. If I do an upgrade of the machine body clearly will not have Canon written on it even if it meant changing all the kit. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice...

Pros: Value for money, sharpness, colors

Cons: Lack of l-bracket

Opinion: Bought a twelve year ago because I thought I would take pictures of butterflies and birds (I was a boy...) I use now with the 24-70 f4 as a "generalist" lens for the landscape, but not only. As soon as I bought it immediately struck me for the colors and sharpness: accustomed to the lens of the kit opened my heart, it was beautiful. Honestly the only flaw I can find him and not having had the L bracket supplied: ok it is not heavy, but in short it was fine. I bought it separately.
