Wow... just wow.

  • Summary: A lot of people will think this is a crazy amount of money to spend on a lens, but they don't appreciate that this isn't just a lens. Hell, I don't even own a camera but I could immediately see the difference this beauty would make to my desk. I used to be terrible for clutter - papers everywhere.

  • Summary: Prior to purchasing this lens, I had used a number of 'L' lenses, mostly under 100 mm. My long lens was the EF 100-400 L, which was useful, but often disappointing. As soon as I started using the 400, I couldn't bring myself to go back to the 100-400.
  • Pros: Super sharp, fast AF
  • Cons: So it is a little heavy, what do you expect?

  • Summary: This lens is tack sharp, super fast, and top quality! I could not ask for better, the sharpness and brokeh produced by this lens are amazing. I have tried it with a 2X extender and did see some noise, but it wasn't anything I couldn't fix in the digital darkroom, still, much better quality without...

Canon EF 400 F2.8 IS USM Lens

  • Summary: I read up on this lens before buying it and I would suggest doing that if you are thinking about picking one up. First it is a large piece of glass and it is heavy which I knew going into this purchase. It isn't the type of lens you want to pack around due to the weight.

Canon 400 mm lense review

Texas Hutch, Amazon
16 November 2011
  • Summary: I have had the lense about 6 months. I have used it in wildlife photography in state parks and at Yellowstone/Grand Teton. The performance of the lense is very good. It has worked well in low light and for long distance shots.

Canon EF 400 F2.8 IS

Adrian, Amazon

  • Summary: Beautiful piece of glass. Bought it pre-owned. Previous owner had kept it in immaculate condition. Lens is a tad heavy, but that is to be expected given the amount of glass inside. Image quality is OUTSTANDING. The sharpness is to die for. A must have for sports and wild life shooting.

Incredible

  • Summary: Razor sharp, faster than a speeding bullet and built like a tank. Should come with a gym membership (heavy) but all that weight has an upside. The most amazing photographs you could imagine capturing.

Canon EF400mm f/2.8L II USM

scattercr, Ebay
11 July 2010
  • Summary: The EF400 2.8L II produces incredibly sharp images at any aperture. It is one generation prior to the current EF400mm f/2.8L IS USM. The high shutter speeds required for fast moving field sports makes Image Stabilization unnecessary.

Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM review by genotypewriter

  • Summary: I haven't only used the 500L IS and the 600L IS but compared to _everything_ else in the line-up, the 400 2.8L IS (wide open) ties for Canon's #1 position for IQ alongside the 200 2L IS.
  • Pros: Super sharp
  • Cons: Heavier than the new Nikon 400 2.8 VR
