Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens Review

SLR Lens and Camera Reviews
6 June 2009
  • Summary: Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM is an excellent long telephoto prime that should be considered by anyone with a limited (relatively speaking) budget. The lens offers very solid image quality and excellent build quality, with good handling of various artifacts, including flare, vignetting and color fringing, all at a more or less affordable price. Are there better super long telephotos out there? Sure.

Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens

The Digital Picture

  • Excerpt: The 400 f/5.6 is relatively light in weight but very solidly built . It feels long and narrow in your hand - and feels even lighter than it is. This feel is most similar to the Canon EF 300mm f/4.0L IS USM Lens . The built-in slide-out lens hood is very convenient.

Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 USM L - Full Format Review / Test

photozone.de
29 August 2009
  • Conclusion: The EF 400mm f/5.6 USM L is one of the oldest lens in the Canon lineup and it's a little bizarre that Canon didn't really bother to upgrade it during all these years. After all there're many users interested in wildlife or sports photography and few amateur can actually afford a behemoth like the EF 500mm f/4 USM L IS. Admittedly most users will probably vote for the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 USM L IS due to its extra zooming flexibility.

Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 USM L - Review / Lab Test Report

photozone.de
17 March 2008
  • Conclusion: The EF 400mm f/5.6 USM L is a very good to excellent lens in aspects and optically a somewhat superior to the current (locally tested) 400mm alternatives - at least compared to those that are affordable for mortals. So if you can live without IS and search for a very long tele lens for wildlife or sports photography you should have a deeper look at this lens.

  • Excerpt: Уникальный длиннофокусный объектив Canon EF 400 mm f/5.6 L USM является одним из лидеров своего класса по качеству изображения, причем превосходит по этому показателю не только оптику других производителей, но и большинство объективов Canon серии EF. В отличие от других длиннофокусных объективов профессионального класса, Canon EF 400 mm f/5.6 L USM при своих великолепных оптических характеристиках сравнительно компактен (256,5мм x 90 мм) и очень легок (1250 г).
