Pros: Very sharp, stabilization is effective and the lens appears well built and rugged. 67mm filter size is a plus.

Cons: None so far.

Opinion: This lens is very underrated. I bought my 70-300L IS used from a major Lens Rental company to replace my 70-200 f4L IS. The 70-300 is heavier but the longer reach is well worth it. It is shorter than the 70-200 but only about 13mm (.5 in) wider and uses the same 67mm filters. The 70-300 fit very nicely in my camera bag without having to reorganize it. I bought an inexpensive 3rd party Tripod ring but rarely use it.

Pros: Short from closed, solid, precise, sharp, excellent stabilization. And why not? Nice. :D

Cons: Almost nothing.

Opinion: It's a 70-200 f4 in all respects, but with 100mm more traded for a negligible fraction of diaphragm in less canvas side. Very solid, very precise, sharp already at TA at all focal points, well stabilized. The portion of the MAF ring with the inscription "Macro" allows beautiful closeups that with 70-200 were completely foreclosed because of the ridiculous native RR. A little may seem excessive weight, but a multiplied 70-200 f4 weighs the same while being longer and darker, so the weight can not be counted among the defects. Once I would have said the price but currently not, on the used if one wants mm amateurs of absolute quality on FF is a best buy. The fact that you can't multiply is absolutely irrelevant, virtually no 70-300 is able to multiply serenely so you know what you buy and why. Unique, small against? Maybe unbalanced with the ring mounted forward... But... just mount it backwards. :D

Pros: Sharp, compact, well built.

Cons: You choose it for compactness by giving up a high brightness.

Opinion: I have used it many times and I confirm a feature reported in many reviews: the sharpness is from true L. Even at TA and 300mm the yield is good, it becomes excellent at the lower focal points and even with 1.4X Kenko Pro multiplier the yield is maintained at more than acceptable levels. Almost non-existent distortion, light TA vignette, minimal CA and anyway everything easily correctable, excellent stabilization. The construction is compact and massive, transmits solidity, the mechanics is sufficiently fluid without significant games. When you're not using zoom blocking, it's a little space in your bag. I think it is a very successful lens with a high Q/P ratio.

Pros: Relationship between compactness and quality, quality acceptable to all focal points

Cons: Sensitive to extreme openings, a lens that makes it best when used for easel or strong light.

Opinion: I would like to confirm what Mr. Chancellors has just written. The various 70-200 besides being limited are very heavy and if you consider the 70-200 f4, it's really not worth it! If this zoom is flanked by a 135 or in 85 lights, they form an extremely effective and quality set. I consider it a panorama goal: the best diaphragms of use are around f8 or more closed. It is true that open diaphragms are to be considered as a real L-series target, but they are not the best. Of course if you use planting it firmly on easel is better! Nothing forbids being used freehand for sports photos or anything like that, but it's much better to wait as long as possible, shorten the times as much as possible and turn on the very effective stabilizer. The micromovement is always lurking even at the shortest focapi!

Pros: Size and weight, crisp at all focal points, tropicalized, 4-stop stabilizer, colors, AF speed

Cons: nobody if you know what you buy, in the past the price was high

Opinion: I start from the end, the biggest criticism in the past was the price and in fact it was high, currently it is under 1000 euros even in Italy so I would say that the criticism is exceeded. A featherweight compared to the various whites and smaller (closed) of the various whites. You can take it anywhere without too much trouble. I would say an excellent handyman's telecoms zoom. The 70-200/2.8 L IS II or III have a better optical quality but weigh a lot and stop at 200, the quality of the whites 70-200 is quite comparable but without the extra 100mm. The construction and stabilizer are series A, it is very pleasant to use and the 4 stops are completely realistic. I have been using the classic white 70-200 for years then replaced by this 70-300L - 135L , I find myself much better and I cover a greater range of needs: either one, or the other, or both. Convenient lock to prevent involuntary stretching. Diam.67 filters, the tripod ring I do not use but I took a compatible one for less than 20 euros. The direct competitors: I would say that the 70-200/2.8 and even the 70-200/4 retain some reason to be preferred to this 70-300 within the limits of the above, in short, absolutely around there is better but if you already have a good fixed in that range of focals it is difficult to have more.
