Great for action !

Safx, Canon

  • 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.

The best lens for wildlife

cindy, Canon
2 March 2014
  • 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.
  • Pros: small lens extremely sharp.

My Favorite Lens

Oboist, Canon
29 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I LOVE THIS LENS!! I find myself trying really hard to use it as much as possible, not only for the obvious reason (the reach provided by the 300mm focal length), but for the spectacular resolution at all apertures, and the wonderful compression at large openings.
  • Pros: Superior build quality, Super-sharp images

This is optical perfection, folks.

J. Howell, Amazon
12 September 2011
  • 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...

Wonderful lens ... if this is what you need

Jonathan D, Amazon
25 August 2011
  • 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.
