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: Sharpness, portability, barrel structure, fast AF, stabilizer.

Cons: Price a bit altino.

Opinion: I like the races of MotoGP superbike cars etc. I started with the Tamron 70 300 VC USD good price but from 200 to 300 not much. Changed with the Canon 70 200 F4 smooth a notch above in detail lens barrel light FANTASTIC lens!!! An L series. Since I was always a little short on the track with the 200 with my 80d I opted for the 70 300 L is. Same sharpness, detail, AF fast to hook the subject as the previous, with 100 in more barrel at the tropicalized top is 4 stop. I am satisfied with the purchase and I really like it I find it excellent even the blurry. I recommend it also for a generic use or for a trip given the weight not excessive is very versatile. Great NICE LENS!!!!

Pros: Incredible sharpness, stabilization and sense of robustness

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: I recently purchased this lens after reading several discordant reviews, using it on a 6d Mark II and I was amazed by the results. Very nice blur effect, sharp at all focal lengths. I have not found any defect, but besides the L series was already synonymous with a great build quality and image. Recommend the purchase!

Pros: Excellent sharpness at all focal lengths, solid construction from tank, tropicalization.

Cons: Frankly no one.

Opinion: I took this lens used at a reasonable price by replacing the 70-200 F4 is. I have not regretted, indeed, the sharpness is equal and 100 mm more are useful. The stabilizer is even better in my opinion. It weighs a little more, but from a feeling of remarkable reliability and then it is much shorter and there is also on a small backpack. Used with the 5d Mark 3 and 6d Mark 2 has produced very nice files, crisp, excellent micro-contrast and blurry very pleasant and then stop! A BIG stabilizer! I read some bad review on this lens and frankly I don't understand! I am a professional and I have used several optics, for goodness sake the fixed have a gear in addition, but I assure you that this zoom as zoom is very nice! I did a test (tripod, focus on the screen to be sure) I compared it with the 100 macro is that in my opinion is one of the sharpest optics of canon, the sharpness in the center is (heard) identical! Only at the side edges more distant cala of a breath! What more do you want from a zoom of these focal lengths?

Pros: Compact, low weight, sharpness, excellent construction, very effective stabilizer.

Cons: Tripod ring not supplied.

Opinion: I've had this lens for a few years and I've always liked it right away. A good leap in quality compared to other Canon lenses of similar focal but not L, it has good sharpness from the maximum aperture and allows you to make excellent quality photos at all focal lengths. For me the real strong point is in compactness, this lens really surprises for the quality it offers with dimensions that allow you to carry it even in relatively small bags, to support what I wrote I can say that I meant to sell it after The purchase of 70-200l f/2.8 II But I kept it because of the ease with which I carry it on every occasion, the 70-200 2.8 is certainly superior (except in the construction and the stabilizer) but it is big, heavy and expensive, I prefer it for sports and Portraits but for landscape or generic use the 70-300l does not make me regret leaving home the 70-200l. Among the merits I would also put a very nice fuzzy. Update: I sold the 70-200 F/2.8 and held the 70-300l, a choice matured mainly for the lowest weight and overall dimensions of the latter.
