Pros: Image quality, stabilizing and precision autofocus

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: When I bought it I didn't think it was so sharp, it pulls out quality shots even in boundary conditions (like backlight and hard backgrounds). The stabilization is excellent and has nothing to envy to the L series optics. I definitely recommend it for the features, of course to be used with light in quantity, and for the excellent value for money.

Pros: Light, focal hike, picture quality, price.

Cons: For what it offers nothing.

Opinion: I have this lens for over a year, I use it almost exclusively for outdoor sports photos "Football" exceptional optics. Very light, I own the 70-200 2.8 is, the 100-400 is USM II, which I can tell you for outdoor sports photos offers the same image quality with a significantly lower weight and cost, even better autofocus, in my opinion is for the characteristics and price is The best Canon lens in this focal range.

Pros: Sharpness at all apertures and focal lengths, autofocus speed, stabilizer, yet light solid construction, button for minimum focal lock.

Cons: The usual lens hood sold separately and at a disproportionate cost, the lock could also be fixed to other focal lengths (eg as it happens on Sigma Tele), it does not have full time MF.

Opinion: The lens is definitely great. On recent Canon machines (I used it on 70D and 6d) It really does its job well and really makes the image well. The image is clean and clear even on the demanding and dense 70D. The autofocus is very fast, really lightning. The lens is built very well and is solid but contextually it is very light. Excellent stabilizer. Comparing with Tamron 70-300 VC USD: I had as many as 2 copies of the Tamron 70-300 VC USD and I can say I can do a lens comparison. The Tamron from its has only the lower cost, the more performant stabilizer (however in certain areas the one of the canon can be more useful) and the hood included. In everything else the Canon wins on the Tamron: solidity, construction, lightness, speed and precision autofocus and image quality, similar to 70, at 300 is significantly better. Visible to eye. If you find it on offer, as I found it, then it is a really convenient purchase. I don't know if, given the cost, the Canon 70-300 L IS worth the effort compared to this gem. Useful the informative display that compensates to the lack of the rangefinder of the focus, unfortunately only works on system.

Pros: High speed autofocus, weight-weight like bulkheads, affordable online price, finishing, materials, effective stabilizer

Cons: Nothing that can not be expected from such an optician

Opinion: I bought this optic after using the tamron vc and have tried the previous version of the canon, I have to say that the difference with the previous version is remarkable, the new one is better in all, has an autofocus speed greater than 70-200 L series and it is very silent. Compared to tamron the differences are tapered, stabilizers on the same plane, but the canon is clearly better 200mm later. For those who do not have large numbers to spend this is a lens I recommend, even to travel, it is very compact, the extra display I find quite useless, the hood is good at 16 euro.rnper what Coast creates great files ... I highly recommend it.

Pros: Sharpness closing of 1 or 2 stop, build quality, weight, fast autofocus.

Cons: Sharpness at full aperture not excellent, incompatibility with teleconverters (but you already knew), the crowds hood price.

Opinion: Before this point I owned Tamron SP 70-300 and the first version of the Canon 70-300 USM is. Having to make a comparison with the two objectives mentioned above, this new Canon is clearly superior in terms of constructive and autofocus qulità. As for the stabilization, for the moment I can show what the new generation Canon surclassi the series I, but if you play it on equal terms with Tamron (maybe this reisce to even absent a more resistant to "shaking" Pelino). Coming to the sharpness, the Canon EF 70-300mm f / 4-5.6 IS USM II is not even remotely comparable to its predecessor (of course is much higher), while wide open, if the play on par with Tamron up to 200mm. Even at 300mm to TA, this new Canon fits a step above the cheapest Tamron. The real superiority of this view, however, it is seen closing of one / two stops: in this case, the sharpness is also decidedly superior to Tamorn, especially in focal lengths from 135 to 300mm. Another thing for which questa lens is preferable to the license plate Tamron competition is the absence of distortion (really problematic defect in the latter) and the substantial absence of chromatic aberration. The only sore point is the lens hood: the optics that will just come out and then there was (so far) real competition on this accessory, but € 180 for a lens hood (Price Amazon in March 2017) seem to me in a bit exaggerated (just a wire).
