Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

Review Date: Jan 8, 2007 Recommend? no | Price paid: $690.00 | Rating: 6 

Pros: Light, toughish.
Soft...or something? Not "poppy" L quality looking shots. QC on Canon's part.

I am disapointed with this lens and my spelling ability...
I think that the people at Samy's camera in Santa Barbara probably think I am crazy for testing so many...and I still got stuck with a bad copy. I am not nuts because I managed to get great 24-105 and 100-400. Go figure...

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

Review Date: Jan 8, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,400.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Sharpness, build, IS, Sharpness, Range, Sharpness.
Dust Sucker.

I don't have much to say that hasn't been said. When I shoot with this lens on my 20D I have a relatively inexpensive 640mm 5.6 lens and on my 5D the sharpness, contrast and colors are fantastic. It just makes you want to shoot more...
