There is life on Sun!

Amazon Mummy, Amazon

  • Summary: I think I have made a discovery more important than Columbus. Because of this super telephoto lens, I was able to discover life on the Sun! One reason no one ever look was because the sun is too bright. Well, I found an easy way around the problem.

Great Quality lens

Jay, Amazon

  • Summary: I picked up this bad boy last month to take photos of my cat, and by golly the quality of the pictures were outstanding! He's a silver mained coon tabby, and I wasn't going to mess around with your regular 55mm lens on a beautiful cat like that, No sir.

RK, B&H Photo
7 February 2014

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
  • Conclusion: 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!

Best telephoto lens I own

Andy, Canon
15 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Resolution has always been my highest priority and this lens certainly is the best. The auto-focus features are superb. After using the 600mm f/4 L lens for years trading it in for the 800 was the best trade I've ever made.
  • Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images
  • Cons: wish it had a larger aperture

The Best Super-telephoto lens

Martin the Bird, B&H Photo
17 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I have owned this lens for about three months now, and all I can say that NO other lens will even comes close to beating the picture quality of this lens. I have tried the new 600mm f4 ii of canon.
