  • Excerpt: I got this lends just 10 days, shoot some birds, the image s are fantastic super sharp, the lens fast accurate focus, it bring my to a new level. love it! I really hope in future Canon can make the lens case with a room for camera attached to the lens. I diffidently need one! The current case is useless. No one like to exchange lens every day, we all like grab it and go!

Great Lens - Still Heavy Though

3 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I use the 600mm IS2 for photographing birds. It is extremely sharp. It performs even better than my last supertelephoto lens which was a Canon 500mm. It acquires focus super fast even with a 1.4X teleconverter on. I can hand hold it for short periods and have got some great distant shots of birds in flight. This lens is a monster in both size and weight compared to smaller zoom lenses.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, 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. It is very much a perfect fit for birding and can render excellent results for in flight images as well.

Simply Superlative

  • 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. I expected excellent performance considering it is the pinnacle of Canon lens design and build quality. The lens exceeded my expectations! Very accurate and lightning fast autofocus, fantastic image quality, jaw dropping good four stop IS.

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? Sure its lighter and does work better with extenders than the previous versions but for about 5K more.

Fabulous Lens

Rick, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I have been using this lens for about 5 months, mostly with the 1.4 extender. I hesitated to buy it for obvious reasons--cost and weight. But i have no regrets The lens is sharp, fast to focus, and gives incredible detail and color rendition. I was pretty happy with my pictures before, but using this lens is a joy. I use it for birds and wildlife and could not be more pleased with the results I get. If you are on the fence and can afford it, jump!
