The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Light, sharp even at the maximum opening at 300mm.
Cons:Price of the lampshade exaggeratedly high...
Opinion:Taken recently to lighten my old kit. With the 80D it works perfectly. Sharpness in addition to expectations and in my opinion, at even focal (but also with cropping...) higher than the various 100-400 and 120-400 Sigma. Autofocus very fast and excellent stabilizer. Given the reduced weight, I recommend it to those who do dynamic hunting, for hiking in the mountains trips etc...
Pros:Fast, exceptional focus, crisp. I use it with a 7D
Opinion:I bought it used, I find it really good. It's very fast, crisp; considering the excursion also has the advantage of lightness. Of note I took pictures of the Giro d'Italia and in the Abruzzo National Park, Lazio and Molise and in some Faunistic Oases. More than excellent results in all very different cases.
Pros:Focus speed (ideal with 6D). Optical quality from L-series at least up to 200mm. Design. "Right" size and weight. Effective stabilizer.
Cons:The f4 is only at 70mm, already at 72 it becomes f4.5.
Opinion:In combination with the 6D gives a crazy speed of focus (considering the autofocus of the 6D), the optical quality is from L series, I tested it compared to a 70 200 f4 L and the photos, with 100% magnification, did not disfigure, indeed sometimes they were better. without considering the plus of the stabilizer (the test was done on easel and is disabled). Obviously I don't have a comparison meter from 200 to 300, but the loss of detail at maximum focal is not obvious. Finally the stabilizer is really effective, it really comes close to the 4 stops promised. In short, an optic with excellent price/performance ratio!!
Cons:It doesn't focus while zooming (which the Mk 1 didn't do)
Opinion:A lens of a unique speed thanks to the Nano USM system. Good sharpness for a standard lens not L. I'm a sports photographer and previously Had the Mk 1 of this lens. I never sold it. With this lens I really have a big problem tracking subjects while I zoom in and zoom out. Let me explain. The lens stops focusing and following the subject as you zoom in (for example, if a subject is approaching and you are in SERVO mode the lens, while you are retracting and extending the zoom dial, stops focusing and you have to stop to continue follow the subject with focus). A shame, which the previous version did not do. Since it's an Mk2 I expected there wouldn't be these downgrades in the lens. For the rest it is a excellent zoom lens for those who travel and everyday use with the new modern Canon machines. Using a 7D Mk2
Pros:Speed and precision autofocus very good sharpness at all focal
Cons:As already mentioned by others, the usual lens hood not in outfit but to buy apart (fortunately it is not original good invoice at a ridiculously cheap price)
Opinion:I bought this optics discounted 50% at a very low price and cheap. I have to say I was surprised as far as the optical quality, compared to the previous model I had, there really is an abyss, especially at the long focal lengths. I also had the way to compare it directly on the field, taking the same photos with the same parameters with the older brother L series, I have not noticed significant differences in the sharpness. The only difference I have noticed is that the USM compared to the L-series at the maximum focal underlays of half a diaphragm while the older brother maintains a precise exposure, perhaps the 5.6 is only theoretical but are negligible little qualities given the overall quality. As for the construction, I would say it is good, certainly not at the levels of the L obvious series, also because otherwise it would not justify the difference in price, but still more than dignified. Also interesting is the modern solution of the small multifunction display that allows you to select the focal, the distances or the level at will. Conclusions, for those interested in this type of focal without wishing to invest too high figures, and does not have special requirements of tropicalization or extreme robustness x heavy use I recommend it quietly, will not be disappointed by the optical quality.
