p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Loving my 400 5.6


I recently added the 400 f5.6 but haven't really had a chance to use it yet for it's intended purpose, which for me is wildlife.

I had to attend a school music program and usually grab the 70 200 2.8 but grabbed the 400 just to see how well it focused in horrible light. I kept the shutter speed probably higher than I needed causing the ISO to have to be high since I am accustomed to IS but I was surprised at the ability to focus quickly on the really dark stage all the way across the gym. I need to play with it to actually see how slow I go on the shutter speed and keep it under control.

I really am liking this lens. I was worried about the lack of IS but with the use so far and watching my settings it has not been an issue.

Nice shot. It's just wonderful that our new cameras allow us to use these hitherto far fetched ISO speeds.
