Pros: Very sharp, stabilization is effective and the lens appears well built and rugged. 67mm filter size is a plus.

Cons: None so far.

Opinion: This lens is very underrated. I bought my 70-300L IS used from a major Lens Rental company to replace my 70-200 f4L IS. The 70-300 is heavier but the longer reach is well worth it. It is shorter than the 70-200 but only about 13mm (.5 in) wider and uses the same 67mm filters. The 70-300 fit very nicely in my camera bag without having to reorganize it. I bought an inexpensive 3rd party Tripod ring but rarely use it.

Pros: All (Weight, sharpness, is, L-series construction, AF speed, R-system compatibility, compactness)

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: I used this lens for about two years, first on 70D then on R6, gorgeous, light to take anywhere, used in mountain excursions especially to photograph animals, maybe a little short on ff? it always depends where you are, and what you want to photograph, personally it gave me satisfaction with both camera bodies, its compactness and lightness compared with other similar lenses is definitely an advantage when you want to WALK in the mountains even for several hours, on R6 the AF has improved considerably, already excellent on 70D, same thing IS in combination with that of the camera body allows long-time shots unthinkable on the old EF system, always used freehand without any problem, excellent balance and tropicalization; definitely underestimated until you try, then you fall in love

Pros: Underrated, unappealing, sharpness, AF, lightness, compactness, L-construction, stabilization

Cons: It does not natively reach 400mm, no one else.

Opinion: GENTLEMEN I PRESENT THE MOST UNDERESTIMATED GOAL OF CASA CANON! Gentlemen here we talk about a lens that is used at 500 euros, has construction from Canon L series, an AF equal to that of supertele and stabilized. Very clear lens, we are on the band of Canon's whites, so 100-400 II, 70-200 2.8 II. Compared to these it pays for not being enough, not bright enough like the 2.8 and not long enough like the 400mm but for this reason it is exceptional: It weighs just over 1kg compared to 1.5kg of the lenses mentioned above, it has the external zoom that although it makes it more "ugly" makes it very compact to put in the backpack. This makes it more transportable than even the 70-200 f/4 L IS I and II EF. If you are looking for a mid-range price but higher quality you will find a used specimen of this series, well maintained, and you will have found a whitefly. Highly recommended.

Pros: focal excursion, 4 stop stabilizer, closed footprint, speed and precision autofocus, weight and now also the cost

Cons: non-internal zoom and in some cases brightness.

Opinion: Before buying it I read many positive opinions that I have to confirm, I bought it to photograph the music and theater shows, given the diaphragm I was skeptical of operation in dimly lit environments, instead the rapid and precise focus and stabilizer allow you to always take home the shot. As I have already mentioned, the diaphragm 4.5 does not prevent me from shooting with poor light conditions thanks to the excellent stabilizer that also has double sensitivity, but it does not allow me to have a selective focus when the subject to be photographed is not very close and with a shallow seabed, in essence not being able in some cases to reduce the depth of field you can not eliminate annoying elements in the background. I am a lover of wide angles but they need a search for the shot, so I must admit that more and more often I put the machine in my bag after having triggered this very versatile lens, to be ready for any eventuality, in my backpack in the central position there is the 6D or 5DII with this mounted lens and comfortable front comfortable the 16-35L f4, Leaving room in the bag for the Sammy 12mm Fisheye, the 50ino 1.8 and the flash/24-70 managing to cover all the focal points I need. The elongation of the lens during the zoom is really ineek and does not go unnoticed especially when trying to steal a portrait, but the 300mm on the other hand allow you to stay at a fair distance, on the occasion of the demolition of the Morandi Bridge, I managed to find an exclusive angle and take home a good image despite the sidereal distance, highly recommended+

Pros: Sharpness,autofocus speed,bokeh,construction,is,compact and not too heavy

Cons: For me nothing

Opinion: I gave inside the 70-200 is f4 to have it and I didn't regret it. Having already had an excellent optics I was afraid to downgrade but comparing the images I found that the 70-300 is not lower in the same focal range. Satisfied since the 100 mm more are convenient. It's built very well, it's crisp and the blurry is good. In the last 20 years I have often changed lenses and kits and this is the longest-running lens in my possession.
