Specialized lens for low light, sports/nature/actions photos.

gliebrand, Ebay
30 August 2014
  • Summary: Just purchased the lens less than a week ago. Main purpose was low light settings with fast action, i.e., sports activity, nature and weddings where you can't get close to the couple. The lens works fine with my 2Xii extender, focus is fast, pictures are beautiful, . . . but lens is heavy. Not only do you need to include the weight 8.55 lbs., but you also need to figure the bracket to hold the lens on your tri/monopod, another 3 lbs., so it is bulky.

  • Summary: As expected of a lens with a street price of $11,499, the Canon 400 f/2.8 IS II USM is stunning in every respect. I offer below my review of the lens based on image quality, AF performance, handling, and user experience, plus I offer a pointer on how to pay for the lens a lot less than the street price when buying from reputable New York photo stores.

Great Lens!

  • Conclusion: I got this lens to replace my 400 2.8L VI. I really like this lens but I have to say I cannot see a real big improvement over the IQ, between VI and VII. If I had to do it all over again, I may have kept my VI. I am not unhappy at all with the upgrade, I just may have been expecting to much. Still a great lens and would recommend it to anyone.

A must have if you are shooting college/pro sports!

Seth Sanchez, Amazon

  • Summary: This review is based off experience with the 400mm 2.8 IS II USM and the Canon 1DX camera I bought the mark I version of this lens 2 years ago. I love(d) it and it produced amazing images for me, especially when shooting in f/4. The weight of the mark I version of this lens was a bit heavy and was a pain when holding it over your shoulder for periods of time. Aside from the weight of it, as I mentioned, the image quality was superb and unbeatable....or so I had thought.

Incredible lens. Doesn't have any peers. But will you get the value for your money?

A.H., Amazon

  • Summary: I have to start by saying what you already know: This lens is amazing. There is no other peer that gives you an aperture of f/2.8 at any higher focal length and weighs so little with the contrast and resolving power this lens provides. The image quality is so high that Adobe has determined that there is no need to generate a lens correction profile for this lens. So what is the catch and how are you going to monetize the investment?

Quality Lens

  • Excerpt: A great versitile lens.Not only do I use it for the reach of the 400mm but find that I'm using it for portrait and macro shots as well.The image quality I get at the closest focusing distance is so good that I can crop the image down to see individual hairs on the legs of dragonflies and use the image for print.I have it mounted on the 1DX at present and the frame rate for sports and wildlife is amazing.I have never had the first edition of this lens so I can't compare...
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
