REVIEW: Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 L IS USM
28 June 2006
Conclusion: If you have a professional need for a beast of this nature, or a bank balance and a back that can stand the hammering, you will not be disappointed. At f/2.8, it is a fast lens for its length and works ideally indoors under lights at such events as fashion shoots as well as on the touchline or a fast bend. It also combines well with Canon’s teleconverter range, still giving autofocus with the 2x. But be warned, this is the heaviest lens Canon produce!
Pros: Excellent optical performance, Good focus pre-set and Image stabilisation, Very solid build quality
Cons: Weight, Price, IS modes and the switch to change them.
