Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS USM

ef600mmf_4_1_
Review Date: Feb 14, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $7,200.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp
Cons:
Weight and length. We can't have it all!

This is a fine lens. I have to state that IS is of significant advantage and noticably increases the percentage of keepers.

I use this lens with the Gitzo 1548 and Whimberley Gimbal Head. One feature I really like is the ability to remove the lens foot and replace it with a Whimberley Plate.

I primarily use this lens for Wildlife. I also have a full size vehicle door mount that supports this lens, Whimberley, flash and Better Beamer Flash extender on the exterior of the door.

Since purchasing this lens, I have to say I have added to my portfolio much faster than when I was using a 400 mm. I find myself rarley wanting more focal length than the 600 f4 + 1.4X Teleconverter.
