Pros: L series; Ergonomics; Sealed; Stabilized; Solid; Well built; bright.

Cons: It is addictive; If he had been black, it would have been nicer.

Opinion: I use it with the stabilizer off, but the stabilizer-free version isn't tropicalized, which is why I took this. F4 opening I think is right. I recently mounted a Canon 1.4X III multiplier to him, bringing it to 98-280 f5.6, but I don't notice the difference, in the sense that I don't find it dark. It's not super bright, but very bright metrics don't use them because my favorite openings oscillate between f5.6 and f.16, so here we go.

Pros: See paolomcmlx's great review below

Cons: Basically none

Opinion: on these focal points I tried a little bit of everything, the first love was (and in some ways still is) the hawthorn, that is, the 70-200/2.8 L IS II but the weight and the objective difficulty in bringing it everywhere became, over time, good reasons to change it but it was not easy. In fact, it took two optics instead of one and precisely a 135L and this 70-200/4 (which I also preferred to the 70-300 L). It is not white, in fact its nickname "affective" is "white" and it is not only a question of the obvious difference between f/4 and f/2.8, the hawthorn is superior to him in everything but, although not bordering on the excellence of white I found it surprising in real use on the street, I feared much worse, the optical quality is definitely good, the lightness and transportability do the rest. I find this couple more comfortable than just the white one, and if you don't have to go to an auditorium or other situations with poor light, you can go out with this alone. There's only one thing I didn't understand about Canon at this stage: why he wanted to do a useless version II of this zoom is a mystery.

Pros: Sharpness, excellent construction, tropicalization, circular diaphragm, weight and small size, excellent value for money.

Cons: Basically no one, at the limit a not perfect backlight hold, however inevitable in a zoom and in any case no worse than that of 135/2 L, and a minimum distortion but I repeat: these are flaws that can be charged to a fixed certainly not to a zoom.

Opinion: In my opinion, this is a somewhat extraordinary objective, since it maintains a truly exemplary clarity at all focal points, and is also quietly able not to disfigure in comparison with the best fixed focal optics; all enclosed in a robust and well-structured body without even being particularly bulky and heavy, and even the blurry, although not particularly soft, contains a remarkable texture and pleasantness.

Pros: Sharpness, stabilization, blurry, build quality, super tested and L-series

Cons: NO cons!

Opinion: I have had it for several years, and I can certainly say that it is an excellent goal. Very pleasant its blurry, lightning-fast focus, and its robust construction. For years on the market, it has been one of canon's best targets.It is not afraid of comparisons. Light as transportability and at the same time solid. I can certainly only highly recommend it!

Pros: All

Cons: if you don't need the 2.8, NONE

Opinion: It is lightweight, tropicalized, stabilized (including panning mode), fast and reliable MAF, compact (internal zoom). What more to ask for? Ah yes the price of the used is great! I've been owning it for 5 years now, and it's a marvel from focus to color rendering. I mainly use it to "chase" my 2 monelli (which are never immobile) and it is giving me many satisfactions. With the extension tubes I was able to make even more than satisfactory macros. If you don't need a 2.8 (but watch your weight and pay attention to what you choose!), because you're professional or otherwise, it's your lens!
