Cons: Soft over 200mm, slow AF, rotating front element, lens hood not included
Opinion: This was my first "non-kit" lens, it's a great lens to extend your focal lenght, it's useful for portraits, events and big wildlife. The IS was very useful. But after some months using it I noticed it falls and tried to deal with it: I rarely exceeded 200mm, when photographing birds I had to use f/8 or narrower to get a sharp image (slow speed or high ISO needed to compensate). I sold it and bought the 70-200mm f/4 L non-IS (this is the only thing that I miss from the 70-300mm), I recommend to save a little bit more and go for the 70-200mm.

Cons:On my specimen the rotation of the ring to vary the focal length is a bit 'too rigid
Opinion:Bought used and paired with a Canon EOS90D and an EOS2000D. Obviously it does not have the quality of the most recent and expensive optics but still defends itself well (for the type of photography I do, mainly dynamic subjects, cars, planes, birdlife). The AF is accurate, fast and quiet, I do not find the noise described by others. The stabilizer is very good, stabilizing the image well even pointing at fast-moving subjects. Combined with the 2000D it has a strong vignetting that has disappeared by combining it with the 90D (sometimes there are unhappy combinations between machine and lens, it is not the first time that I hear of problems that disappear simply by combining the lens with another camera body). On my specimen, however, the rotation of the ring to vary the focal length is a bit too rigid and sometimes tends to make small shots. This is the only flaw detected on this lens (and that is probably just mine). All in all he always gave me good quality images and overall I am more than satisfied.
Pros:Small, Light, Economical, good yield in colors and sharpness for its price range, effective stabilizer.
Cons:Barrel that rotates with focus, a little noisy and plastic.
Opinion:I took used this lens with two years of seller guarantee at a really affordable price. Bought to have a forklift that can replace in case of failure the 70-200 2.8L that I sometimes use with the 1.4x II (in sports photography I need to use the reduced DOF to clean the background). Obviously as quality, solidity, sharpness, focus speed, price are not comparable optics. As machines I use a 77D and a 5Dsr that as a sensor density grant very little to defects. I personally recommend this objective, but I realise that with this range of objectives it is very fortunate. I had for example an Efs 15-85 that, up to 15 or 18 Megapixels defended well, passed to 24 I went crazy to have shots in focus at 15mm and read reviews instead of praising its quality. The 70-300 in question I believe will become my companion for hiking in the mountains (which are not aimed at photographic hunting) because it is a really good compromise weight / quality and price / quality. In a nutshell it is an optics that takes you into situations perhaps at risk without having the anxiety to lose two salaries in case of accidental damage. I am used to optics such as the 24-70 2.8L II, of course they are light years away as optical and mechanical quality, but if you are lucky enough to buy, now only used, a good specimen is a really good deal. After all, it's still a mid-to-low-end perspective made in Japan.
Pros:Lightness, versatility, portability, color rendering, quietness and (hearing, hearing) sharpness throughout the focal range., Price.
Cons:Outrageous hood that, if you do not remove the automatic maf, you risk ruining something to put it or take it off. The front lens rotates and the maf ring is the same.
Opinion:Found practically new on ebay, I took it for a few mm. Plus in situations of sporting events. I already have the 70_200 is f4 L, but, in fact, at some moments I remain short. I tried in the park in front of the house in different diaphragms and I can not really complain since: it is clear enough, has an excellent color rendering, is quiet, has a very good stabilizer ... Of course you have to be careful do not rest your fingers on the ring of the maf because it rotates, but who cares. For 200 euros I found a sample that does not have the flaws mentioned by other users. I will use it mainly for soccer matches paired with the 70_200 f4 is L, on a second body. Apparently, I was lucky.
Cons:Sharpness at longer focal lengths, difficulty 'engagement of maf
Opinion:I can not speak very well of this lens. If one decides to take a 300 would expect better performance on more 'focal lengths and so' not 'was, at least on my copy. Ugly and noisy in the maf with that rotation. I do not say a banality 'when I say that the 55-250 IS II total (construction part) returns the best files of this glass I sold almost immediately.
