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

Review Date: Oct 20, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,350.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Versatile and a great wildlife and sports walk around lens. I love the psuh pull design for fast targeting of subjects.
I see some dust inside after 1 year of heavy use. It is useable but not great in low light. It is also semi usable but not great with a 1.4 extender.

I was really torn between buying the 100-400 or the 300, F-4 or the 400, F-5.6 prime lenses.

I have to say, I am glad I made this choice. It is my favorite lens for all kinds of sports and wildlife shots. It is sharp and is a very versatile walk around lens. Every day I go out with this lens, I am glad I decided to go with a zoom. The push-pull design of this lens is great for fast spotting and then zoom targeting. I have used this lens on both my 20D and my 40D and I love the results.

Here are a few gallerys of photos done completely with the 100-400 at various focal lengths and lighting.
