Worth the Money

  • Excerpt: Right now I use this lens mostly with the Canon 2X extender. There is a Bald Eagle nest near my home and it's difficult to get very close. I did not purchase this expecting to handhold it so the weight is not an issue. I have been extremely pleased with the results. Worth the price for me!
  • Pros: Rugged, Sharp images, Strong Construction

Worth The Price of Admission

  • Excerpt: I use this lens mainly for wildlife photography. My last Super-telephoto lens was the 500mm F/4 L series. In my opinion, the 600mm is even sharper and provides much better stabilization at slower shutter speeds. It is rugged and built to top quality.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Summary: I'm a wildlife & nature photographer with a focus on bird photography. I've owned and used other super teles in the Canon L series and find the 600 to be the near perfect telephoto lens for bird photography.

Nice lens but why so much $$$$$

Christopher Schlaf, B&H Photo
16 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I owned a few copies of the previous version and was quite happy with them but because of my addiction to wildlife photography I had to have this version. Ive been using it for over a year now and yes it is a great piece of equipment but why is it so expensive?
