Summary: I don't own this lens but as a member of CPS, I was able to used it for one week on their loaner program. I must say it the best telephoto lens I ever used. I loved it more than the 400mm 2.8.
Summary: Amazon shipping was a day later than pro missed, but packaging was excellent and preserved Canon's original outer carton. The Canon lens performance was outstanding, right out of the box. This lens delivers on all of its promises. Beautiful image quality and rapid auto focus. No real need to get in depth here, if you are looking to purchase, then you already know and understand what you've are looking at. This is optimum quality performance.
Excerpt: Very sharp, not too heavy for a super telephoto. It is hand holdable with a high shutter speed (more than 1/300 in my experience, even with IS). Wish the lens hood was smaller (from an ease of use standpoint). Amazing lens and don't regret the purchase.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought this lens to shoot high school football games, and I absolutely love it. The AF performance is amazing, and the image quality is fantastic.During day football games where the 2.8 aperture is not critical, I add a 1.4 TC to make it a 420 mm f/4 lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: The main reason I bought this lens is because recently I inherited some money. I would not be able to buy it otherwise. This lens is insanely expensive. I used it on several occasions shooting sports, portraits and landscape. Every picture comes out really beautiful. No matter where you point this lens - the result is sharp and at the same time dreamy, creamy, painterly.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
