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

ef100_400l_1_
Review Date: Jul 9, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,300.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Build Quality, Sharp Pictures, fast AF
Cons:
F4 would be nice but I just dial up the ISO on my 10D.

I've used this lens extensively for flight shots of raptors, in this instance, the push pull design is a god send. I'd pull back to 100-200mm to find the bird in the sky then push back out to get as much of the bird in the frame as possible.

AF with the 1.4 TC works great with Fred's taping trick.

Sharpness is outstanding...if I do my part...USM and IS will definitely keep this lens head and shoulders about the new Sigma and Nikon 80-400's
