Great for hand held tele photos.

  • Summary: I purchased this lens for bird and wildlife photography. I was looking for a lens that I could hand hold, and the 400DO fills the bill perfectly. It is light, maneuverable, and easy to use. The IS works well, and I personally do not find the F/4 aperture to be a drawback.

  • Excerpt: I use it primarily for wildlife, mostly birds. I have been using it primarily to follow 2 eagle nests paired with the 2x 111 extender to give me 800mm and autofocus. I also use it at short range, 12 feet +/- for hummingbirds.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Summary: I acquired my Canon EF 400mm f4 DO IS USM lens (hereafter known as the lens) just recently and am very happy with it. I can say this with certainty "don't expect those fantastic shots to pop out of the camera the first time you use it". There is a learning curve to it.

  • Excerpt: I will be going on an African safari later this year. The luggage weight restriction is a major challenge for this trip.

Excellent Portable Lens

  • Cons: NONE
