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!

Pros: Sharp, Light, Tropicalized, Efficient Stabilization

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: Optics that do not need presentations, at this time begins to become accessible even on the new if you have a minimum of patience in research or negotiation with stores. Beautiful blurring, detachment of the planes, separation of colors and sharpness I think have very few rivals in its band, the only venial defect that it carries with it is the fact that it does not go unnoticed, otherwise it is compact, light, robust, ideal companion of photographic outputs because it is versatile.

Pros: L quality, sharpness, stabilizer, price (used), transsporability.

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: Fantastic lens, sharp, stabilized , preceding and fast in focus. bought model built at the end of 2013 for a few hundred euros. despite being an F4 lens, it gives remarkable results, soft and pleasant blurry and an excellent color rendering (often used for portraits). Its sharpness splits the hair already at F4. I recommend this lens to those who want to make a leap in quality without having to spend much (used price talking ).

Pros: Sharpness, weight, speed and precision AF, colors.

Cons: I can't find any.

Opinion: Bought for a few months now at a good price, used but indistinguishable from the new, which even to find it again, for the prices requested would take you to buy the Series II. Right from the start I found a special feeling with a net floor detachment and high contrast. The lower weight made me prefer it to the big brother 2.8 series II, so a place in the backpack is always found. I owned the 70-200 f2.8 of Sigma years ago and when I changed it, in favor of the stabilized 70-300 Tamron, the shoulders heartily thanked. I arrive at this 70-200 f4 L IS from a modest Tamron 70-300 stabilized that accompanied me for several years and then from a smooth version of the white (purchased with guarantee of 6 months), but made after just a month for the manifestation of the fateful focus shift that usually afflicts the IS version. What to say the Tamron was good, but comparing and enlarging to 100% you realize that the difference is there and it is not pochina, then sacrifice the 100mm more it offered, but especially from 250mm up were not quite exceptional. Then what to add that others have not already pointed out? The lampshade? That's, or you're going to buy the tulip ones on Amazon. Isn't the easel attack included? But even this you already know at the time of purchase, also as with the Tamron stabilized, the monopod or tripod is something that is used very rarely, unlike with smooth white. However, now on amazon with about 25 euros take a good metal attack with a color completely equal to the optics and with the fast attack of the type Arca Swiss. Even today very valid and highly recommended.
