Pros: Sharpness already from f2.8, colors, blurred by fairy tale, unparalleled speed and precision, compactness and robustness, value for money, evergreen.

Cons: the weight leaves a little to be desired and (perhaps) lack of stabilization, but those who buy it already know.

Opinion: I urgently needed a good telephoto objective, I already knew that this jewel would fully meet my expectations.... What to say, a milestone of Canon house, very sharp at f2.8, a f4 blade, versatile and very fast despite the weight, robust and war ! The blurry and the colors combined with the nuances and the generic rendering make it pure poetry.... in the used you can find even a little while of 650-700 euros, if you want a canvas "simple" but also effective in professional use do not miss it !

Pros: Sharpness,great blurry,butfast even in low lighting

Cons: Minimum focus distance,weight,no tropicalization

Opinion: After a few months of testing, I can review this goal. At the first impact I immediately noticed its robustness and the weight not really contained... it's not a lens that you can take it with you too long. Like all l-series lenses, it shows remarkable sharpness and has a very pleasant blur. The colors are faithful... has a quick focus, in the portraits it gives a certain three-dimensionality... Very recommended.

Pros: Sharpness, image quality, brightness

Cons: Absence of tropicalization

Opinion: After a year of use I can say that having gone from the stabilized f4 version to this, 2.8 not IS, was a great choice. I feared the absence of the stabilizer combined with the higher weight of the lens and instead I do not miss it at all: the amount of photos with micromove is absolutely negligible while always shooting freehand. The image quality is top, you find the files clean, practically already finished and with gorgeous colors and blurring. I use it mainly for sports, but also for portraits and reportage. Considering also that taking it used and selling the f4 IS I spent virtually nothing, the move was a success. The higher weight compared to the f4 version is something you know at the time of purchase, so you can't say it's a flaw but a feature of the lens. I still find it well balanced and comfortable to wield. The absence of tropicalization can be a limit, however I have not encountered problems even using it very outdoors in non-clean contexts.

Pros: Robustness, Af that does not mistake a shot, bright, colours

Cons: Minimum focus distance

Opinion: I used the lens in question on two camera bodies: 5D Mark III and 7D Mark I (it will be my next camera body). What about, sensational. Nice to use, quick focus, no mistake a shot. Sharp and with sublime colors, it adapts to anything. I went from street photos, macro, to moving objects without any problem, gave me great emotions. Using the only single point of MAF on both camera bodies I had the chance to appreciate with my own eyes a bokeh never seen until now. Natural and well defined, lust for the eyes. The only downside is maybe the minimum focus distance, but it's a 10 lens. To have in the kit.

Pros: Robustness, fast and precise AF

Cons: Not Tropicalizato, resistance to flare

Opinion: Had for 5 years on 5d and 5d III and many of my photos here in the Forum are made with the aforementioned lens. Very well built, with precise AF. Sharp even at full aperture but not the best around. Tamron G2 and Canon II series beat him in this field. Excellent blur, you notice enough chromatic aberration at full aperture. The resistance to flare is a weak point unfortunately. Watch where the sun is if you shoot with the low sun on the horizon. Unfortunately not tropicalized and in my 5d III the hooking had a little bit of play. However it is a lens that I recommend especially for portraits but also landscapes.
