Excerpt: I HAVE A 7D MARKII AND THIS IS MY PERFECT WILDLIFE LENS THAT I HAVE EVER HAD, I RETURNED THE 150-600 SIGMA C TO GET THIS ONE, CAUSE IT IS SO MUCH BETTER AND SHARPER, AND FASTER... YOU WILL NOT LOOSE WITH THIS LENS, JUST MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GETTING IN TO BEFORE YOU BUY IT..
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: The sweet spots are f/8 and f/11 ..With a Canon 6D you can increase the ISO settings without too much noise. I had spectacular razor sharp results with speeds 1/1000 and above.. This is my first experience with this super telelens and there is indeed a learning curve.
Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Basically, in good light shooting wildlife there is nothing sharper than this lens at this price range. It's not easy to use well handheld, but once you get the hang of it persistently good results are achieved.
Pros: cheap, Extremely Sharp, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Summary: I bought this lens one year ago and have taken 1000s of photos with it. For the price, you would expect excellent focus and you get that along with a beautiful bokeh. It is light enough to handhold with some practice.
Keep practicing until you can make the lens perform like it's meant to - a best buy lens

Excerpt: I bought this lens used from B&H and could not be more pleased. I chose it over the Sigma & Tamron 150-600mm zooms because of better image quality and highly positive reviews. Add mine to the list. I'm new to bird photography and have had two outings with the 400. Its autofocus is fast and accurate.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged
