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

ef100_400l_1_
Review Date: Sep 7, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Flexibility of framing, close focus
Cons:
soft wide open, stuggles to AF with 1.4x even with taping on D60, dust

Like some other users I have found dust a problem but haven't experienced the jams. A great lens for telephoto macro work when using 500D and tubes. Sharpness increases when stopped down 1/2 stop to 6.7.

Super safari lens when you are confined to a vehicle.

Can't seem to get sharp shots with 1.4x on D60 even when using mirror lock and beanbag/tripod but maybe its just me.

Ideal replacement would be 300f2.8IS with convertors
