ef400_4dois_1_
Review Date: Oct 28, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Light Weight 4.3# Compact size 10" length Excellent image quality and color Quick accurate focus,
Cons:
No functional issues known. Yes would like this lens to less costly We paid $5300 recently. Serial Number 51xx

For those that know me, I've been complaining on dpreview about the weight of the 400mm 2.8L IS at 12#. Add a 4# camera and a 1# monopod for a 5 hour event like football... and I fount this lens staying in the cabinet too often; so I sold it to a fellow in Canada.

I tested Serial No 41xx 6 months ago and liked it. We recently bought this lens NEW, and am very pleased with the quick focus and tracking, mounted on the 1D3. This light weight lens is superb.
I'll be looking forward to acquiring Canon's new 200mm F2L IS next year when its released.

I've got some action sportsshots on our site, lots of other examples:
