Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS USM review by gabrielvines

gabrielvines, slrgear.com

  • Summary: I bought this lens for an annual spring journey to a National Park. I usually either buy or rent a 500mm f4, but I got a good deal on a used 600mm so I decided to give it a shot. On the plus side using the 600mm in conjunction with a 1.4X TC gave me incredible reach and really brought the animals in close. The lens was also very sharp and focussed quickly and accurately, especially when used without the TC.
  • Pros: Super sharp + the range, oh the range!
  • Cons: If you touch this glass you start scratching it.

600mm super tele. lens

Ronald J. Snider, Amazon
15 November 2011
  • Summary: Well constructed, but a little on the heavy side. Sharp images, fairly fast for a super tele. Like the full time manual focus capability along with the autofocus. Has improved my wildlife photo chances.

  • Summary: This lens is razor sharp. Glass is clean. A little heavy (13 lbs.) but a good tripod or monopod will take care of that. Excellent.

Canon 400mm f/4.0

  • Summary: This is a fantastic lens for the appropriate application. Surfing shots or sports in general. It does weigh more than one may exspect and I would rec the appropriate monopod. I purchased the Manfrotto. You will also need an adapter for the attachment to the lens base.

Best Lens I've Ever Used

dsl1126, Ebay
1 May 2009
  • Summary: I've used many Canon lenses in my life. This is truly the best lens, Canon or not, that I've ever used in my life. The IQ is excellent when the lens is used by itself or with a 1.4x or 2x Canon Tele-converter. The colors that are rendered digitally are amazing. You'll read that you can't hand hold this 13lb lens but I disagree. I have taken some amazing photos hand holding this lens. Why buy a car when you can buy a lens for the same price.

  • Summary: This is a great lens for bringing things up close and personal. Has image stabilizer that works great. Bit on the heavy side. Recommend it as worth the expense and weight.

Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS USM review by Badmono

Badmono, slrgear.com
13 December 2008
  • Summary: I'm slightly dis-appointed with this lens, the slow focussing takes a lot of getting use to, and the slow F4 Aperture doesn't do the lens any favours either. IMO this lens ought to be a F2.8. It works well on Full frame and cut down sensors. The lens is sharp enough and the IS works well, but in comparison with My 'Money' lens the 400 F2.8 IS.
  • Pros: Cons:
  • Cons: slow focussing

Overpriced and false advertisement

Knut A Hansen, Amazon
29 October 2007
  • Summary: Why do they have a $20,000+ list price in the ad? Totally false advertisement as buying it from Canon USA directly it goes for $9100 (list price). Disappointed in Amazon on this deal trying to make $9800 seem like a good deal.
