Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM

ef400mmf_56_1_
Review Date: Apr 3, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: lightweight, fits in backpack
Cons:
no autofocus at >F5.6 unless you use the "tape" method, which is slow autofocus

I usually use this lens in daylight so F stop is not a problem unless I want to add the 1.4TC. When I do that, I lose the quick autofocus while using the "tape" method on the TC. I still think it's a great lens. A lot less expensive than the 400 2.8 as well as lighter (10lbs? not including the case). Crisp clear photos from corner to corner. I don't regret buying it.
