So much fun to use at a swim meet

Vivek Gupta, Amazon
11 August 2014
  • Summary: I don't own this lens, but I rented it for a week for a national Swim Meet in Iowa. I typically have used the 70-200 2.8L IS, 100-400L IS, 135 f2 and 1.4x III for most of the meets in the past that I have take pictures at, however those were usually at 25 yd pools, not 50 meter pools.

  • Excerpt: Primary use is for nature/wildlife photography. Prior to purchase I considered and tested the EF 400 F2.8 and the EF 400 DO F4 lens. The high versatility of the 200mm to 560mm range offered by this lens was the major decision factor in purchasing this lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

This is lens do everything

31 March 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is amazing, delivery quality image as any prime lens, plus the feature that let you work in composition. This lens (200-400 f4) do the job of 200mm,300mm and 400mm primes 2.8mm. The only difference is the aperture (a little more than 1.2mm less of those three).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

More Than I Expected

Mac McAndrew, B&H Photo
29 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Took it out immediately and shot with internal and external Extender(784mm-f13-1/1250-ISO1000-5DMkiii), I figured this should stretch the test. If I wasn't pleased it was going back! I kept it and am thrilled with the performance. The sharpness blew me away!
