Pros: Size, Weight, Construction, I.S., ease of use.

Cons: None to date.

Opinion: I have the 24-105, and 500mm and needed something in between. I had the 100-400 in the past and sold it. I liked the 100-400 for versatility but I didn't seem to get a lot of keeper shots with it. I choose this lens for the weight and price. I backpack a lot and need a lens of this length for nature shots without a lot of weight. I have been very satisfied with this lens so far I have taken very good macro shots in my wifes flower bed and great sport shots at my Granddaughters soccer games. I would recommend this lens to Juza followers.

Pros: Weight ,compact, stabilized, built-in lampshade, macro, minimum distance of focus.

Cons: F4 ? But I don't think that's a problem. Lack of tropicalization? But I don't think it's a problem So... nothing relevant.

Opinion: I recently bought alongside the heaviest, versatile and sharpest 70-200 f2.8 is. Excellent lens, very sharp when used smooth but also with multiplier 1.4x does not disfigure. On apsc bodies it becomes a 480mm. It's stabilized and that's an advantage. Years ago I had the 400 f5.6 sold after 10 days precisely because it was not stabilized. The stabilizer is old-fashioned, recovers 2 stops and a bit noisy but no making videos does not create problems for me. Excellent the slightest focus that allows you to take macro style photos. I am very satisfied with the purchase and since canon has been cataloging this optics for more than 25 years and has not yet provided a second series it means that it basically likes it.

Pros: Lightness, sharpness, low weight and flexibility

Cons: Lack of Tropicalization (but we can stay), AF slow on dynamic but for the price it has is more than great

Opinion: I bought this lens recently and from a juza user who thank you for the helpfulness and kindness and for how it held the lens . The lens is gorgeous very sharp and easy to use in every field, portrait, birdlife, macro... Although not a macro, the 0x24 ratio with a 25-inch extension tube makes it practically a full-fledged macro. Excellent multiplied to 1x4 which makes it (on apsc) a 670 mm with which you can make bird shed excellently while from forest is a little short but effective the same. Great built-in lampshade.

Pros: Perfect weight-millimeter combination for all wildlife, including the close-up

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: it is the first fixed that I own and I no longer detach it from the reflex and the extender, because I do everything: from swallows in flight, to chamois, to spider in the canvas; being able to make pseudo-macro at a distance makes it the ideal OB for fiphoninsects - beautiful idea the lampshade that is not lost, and after wrapping it in a canvas camo is protected and also well camouflaged

Pros: Sharpness, portability, integrated hood, AF accuracy and reduced weight.

Cons: Maybe a little slow autofocus in very dynamic situation

Opinion: A lens that has few rivals. Very clear already at room temperature and with a blurred piacevole.rnLa its uniqueness is due to the flexibility of use despite being a fixed and not zoom.rnOttima for close-up with his beautiful ingrandimento.rnMolto report on portraits, thanks to a soft blur .rne usable for sports and wildlife photos also thanks the opportunity to be moltiplicata.rnAdoro integrated hood, very comfortable and practical.
