Great for action !
6 July 2015
Excerpt: I work as a sports advertising photographer and some racing events.
The focusing speed of this lens is amazing!
I had an experience when the cycling sprinters were approaching the finish line and the Moto race marshals were right in front of the lead group by about 50 meters.
Excerpt: This lens by far exceeds my expectations.
I used a range from a 400mm f 5.6 to a 500mm to 600mm
f 4 II . After my purchase of this lens it replaced all of them.
The quality of the use of a 1.4 III and the x2 extenders with
my 1D IV is amazing I love my pictures.

Excerpt: I have used this lens for many sporting events and love it!!! It responds well for fast action. I shoot Soccer. Football. and Baseball with it as well as wildlife. I have used it in all types of weather conditions and never had a problem!!! I have been using Canon since 1975.
Excerpt: I read all the reviews and had to try this lens. As the title says, believe the hype, this is one outstanding lens.
Image quality, sharpness, color, auto focus speed is all a step ahead of anything else I have owned.
Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images
Summary: Let's get this out of the way at the beginning. This lens is huge, heavy, and VERY expensive. The price is very hard to stomach, but when you take a while to realize the technical brilliance and attention to perfection that went into designing and manufacturing this lens, it becomes apparent that...
Summary: This lens is about cramming in as much light as possible without sacrificing (serious) loss of quality when fully open. It is just wonderful for wildlife or some sports photography in low lighting.
