Pros: Extremely sharp and contrasty, portable, takes the Canon 1.4x III tele-converter well, fast accurate focusing, excellent IS (image stabilization), and the minimum focus distance is 1 meter.

Cons: Occasional purple fringing on high-contrast subjects. Bokeh isn't as nice as a prime, of course (but it isn't terrible). I wish the tripod collar was removable. Expensive.

Opinion: This is the best tele-zoom I've ever used. It is an improvement in every way over the original 100-400. It is sharper, faster focusing, more accurate, has better stabilization, and handles the 1.4x TC III well. However, the best feature for me is the 1m close focus (1/3 life size at 400mm), which lets me get closer to frogs than before. While the bigger faster super-teles have advantages, this is the best portable tele available for Canon. I've used the original 70-200 f/2.8L IS, 300f/4L, original 100-400L... the 100-400 mark II is better than all of them... except the 300/f4L is smaller/lighter. None of the other lenses I listed are bad (they are all excellent), but the 100-400 mark II is noticeably better.

Pros: Optical quality

Cons: Weight, footprint and price

Opinion: There's not much to say about one of the best canvases on the market... Quality at all focal points, in all respects. Only "against" that I find are the considerable weight, the clutter (it's not exactly compact...) and the high price... but on the other hand quality is paid for and also deserves some sacrifice of practicality, especially to these focal points that can be left at home if not strictly necessary.

Pros: I'd say everything

Cons: It doesn't hold up the filters (UV) in my case, otherwise nothing

Opinion: Gorgeous goal, awesome AF speed and with the 7D Mark ii in my opinion the AF is something unique. Only uncomfortable but it is really a crap, the system of release of the trepia bracket is a bit uncomfortable. Unfortunately initially I used it with a protective UV filter as I always did, but I then discovered that the cause of soft photos and micromoves was just him, once removed is I could appreciate its great quality, the low weight makes it really very as versatile as zooming, you won't be disappointed if you buy it. L-series always a guarantee.

Pros: Image quality, sharpness, focus distance, Af speed, stratospheric even with extender 1.4XIII

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: Just taken and immediately tested, great optics in everything I do not find any flaws, if I just have to then I can make a note on the blurred that is not the best, but only because I am used to the 600mm canon f4, I am really satisfied to have it in my kit, I gave back the 400mm f5.6 and I was afraid of being disappointed and instead I was happy with the choice, even at 400mm at full opening is in my opinion superior to the good old 400 5.6, in short I highly recommend it to those who want to take naturalistic or sports photography.

Pros: All

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: Maybe I've been a little drastic in Pros and Cons but things are pretty much the same. Of course it starts at 4.5, of course it's heavy but it's a 100-400 of great quality and it's worth it. For many years I preferred the 70-200/2.8 but if I really have to carry a cannon then that's at least a 400. I compare it to 70-200 because I will make a similar use of it and, from the first bars, I already see that it is not inferior as quality, indeed. It produces even the best blurring at focal points above 200, not probeable with the 70-200 of course. The difference in brightness can be a problem up to about 200 but during the day it does not prevent anything, in the evening or indoors in theaters or the like the light is always on the framed part that, necessarily, is less than that framed with 70-200. It also lends itself in all other application areas where you use these focals in their own way (and not as improper as I do). As a definition and sharpness I didn't really think it could be even superior to the classic white. I have taken it very recently but, at the moment, I am fully satisfied. Update: I confirm everything I said as first impressions except the fact that indoor f/2.8 is always f/2.8 so these whites serve both and for different purposes.
