Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM

ef100_400l_1_
Review Date: Aug 29, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,100.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Contrast, IQ, sharp, great bokeh
Cons:
Slow AF (but it's a 100-400), push/pull system can be difficult to get used to, a bit heavy.

I love this lens. I took it on safari to Tanzania last year and it performed great! I thought the push/pull system would allow a lot of dust into the lens, but in those extremely dusty conditions, I could not see a difference in the photos: there is no dust in the pictures.
The lens is a little heavy. After using it for 15mins for the first time, my arm felt a little sore, but you get used to it.
