Simply Superlative

T. Varela, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • 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
13 February 2014
  • 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!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Excellent update to a great lens

twilly, B&H Photo
12 February 2014
  • Excerpt: As an owner of the orignal 600 F4L IS which I sold to buy the 800 F5.6L IS I decided to buy the new version as I missed a few things I didnt get with the 800, (I will keep both as they are significantly different). Out of the box the first thing I noticed is the very significant weight difference, (and I can hand hold for short periods). I wouldnt call this lens light but relative to the original it truly is.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

Best Super Tele...Period!

5d3-shooter, Canon
28 January 2014
  • Conclusion: I have other Super Teles, including the 800mm. I traded up from the 600mm VI and unlike with my 400mm I can tell the difference in the Vi and VII! All around just a perfect lens, in every way, nothing else to say!
