Expensive but allows superb wildlife photography

Cardiokid, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Purchased this product as a gift for my wife who is an avid amateur photographer and artist (so when I say the picture looks great she is looking for ways to improve them). Prior to this purchase she used a Sigma 150-600 mm lens which allowed excellent wildlife photographic acquisitions but, nothing...

  • Summary: It took me 2 years to save up money working at my minimum wage job to purchase this beauty. Sure maybe its just a plastic composite tube with a couple glass circles inside but it was worth every darn penny!

Aviation Art

FlyArt Publishing, B&H Photo
3 November 2015
  • Excerpt: Awesome lens used mainly for Aviation Art Photography. Hand-holdable for extended period of time. Great stabilizer, down to 1/320 while following the moving object! Needs to be coupled with a right camera body.

Absolutely The Best

  • Excerpt: Having had this lens for a few months I would say that this is the "Bees Knee's" when it comes to long range photography.

Pricey, but worth every cent

Arturo, B&H Photo
29 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I am a wildlife photographer. I have been using a 500mm for years, with cropped sensor cameras, and with 1.4x and 2.0x converters. I never liked the results that I got with the 2.0x converters. But I need a really long telephoto.

RK, B&H Photo
7 February 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is very well made, like other L-series Canons... Even with extender 1.4x III, the sharpness and quality is remarkable. Yet to find a light-but-stable stand to carry this lens and camera body around...

heavy, very heavy

jenn, Amazon
29 January 2014
  • Summary: It's somewhat hilarious just how oversized this lens is. I suppose I can almost understand how it might get mistaken for a piece of armament from a distance. Even hanging a not insubstantial 1D off of it makes it very clear where the balance of power is in this relationship--the lens has it all,...

Best Gift ever!

5d3-shooter, Canon
28 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I got this lens as a gift from my mother. It is the best gift ever. It is very heavy and you need a tripod to use with it. I tried using a mono-pod, but had better results/luck on a tripod. I am not sure Arnold Schwarzenegger could hand-hold this one for long, even in his youth!
