Pros: I would like to start a gitzo monopod review site! I just bought a GM5541 carbon fiber monopod rated to hold 55 lbs with a Canon EOS EF 400 2.8L IS
Cons:



 
Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM

Pros: I have owned this lens for over 3 years and have to admit it's the sharpest 400 mm lens wide open at 2.8. I consider this lens #1 with the Canon 85 1.2 Mark II following short behind.
Cons:
no cons

Hands down the best supertelephoto lens out there!!!

Pros: Well I like the color white already I think it's cute as a button.
Cons:
well technically speaking 300mm is not that long of a lens if you do sports like myself for a living, I would recommend the canon 400 2.8 L IS And for yoursake and the sake of all the photographers on this website don't waste your money on a third party 30mm lens. Thats all I have to say and oh yeah Hail Hail Canon for the 400 2.8 IS

I own the non IS version and it is as sharp as a tack. it is too heavy to hand hold it very long,it's good for college football,swimming indoors,football,soccer good with teleconverters.
I would recomend this lens to anybody wanting to step up to a supertelephoto.Also if you can find a non IS version in good shape,I've heard the original 300 is just as sharp as his IS version. And as far as IS goes,I currently own the 400 2.8 IS L version and it is "annoying" and slows the autofocus down.

Pros: the reach,the feel on your hands
Cons:
I hAVE NOTHING NEGATIVE TO SAY about the lens

Great lens, great for soccer with a 1.4 x converter. Just a great all around lens. The weight doesn't bother me.
