Old faithful

  • 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
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

  • 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

Photographer Advocate "Photographer", Amazon

  • Summary: I don't need to go on about this lens as everyone else has said - extremely sharp wide open - you need a tripod - you need to shoot fast shutter - gorgeous smooth bokeh - works well with a EX II tube in bright conditions - built to last the apocalypse - light weight relative to even the 70-200mm IS...

Great lens for birders!

Johnny Questionable, B&H Photo
26 April 2015
  • 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
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

An Oldie but Certainly a Goodie

B. Breault, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this lens back in the spring of 1996 (Yes, it dates back that far!). That year I took it to the Newport Jazz Festival with my EOS 1N and came home with some amazing pictures. Over the years it has continued to be a great lens for outdoor shots.

Bryan, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this as a nice entry line lens for wildlife photography and am very happy. The color and contrast is amazing. The auto focus is very quick/quiet. And the build quality is superb. The only downside is the lack of image stabilization.
