Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM

ef400mmf_28l_1_
Review Date: Mar 22, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Unbelievable IQ and AF
Cons:
Weight and obviously the cost

You already know that this this is heavy and expensive. What yo may not know is that looking at the pictures it produces vergen on a religious experience. Unbelievable IQ. The AF is so fast you'll find yourself jsut aiming anf pressing the shutter half way down jsut to amaze yourself at how fast a blurry scene comes into crisp clear focus. Instantanous. If handles the 1.4X and 2X like they are part of the original lens. Effortless and exacting. I've compared the images of mine to the much talked about 300 2.8 and the ones produced by the 400 are better but you have to pixel peep to see the difference. If you can afford this lens, and can handle lugging around the 13 pounds then there really isn;t another choice in my opinion.

Pros: Clearity, Speed
Cons:
None

I moved from the magic drain pipe (80-200 "L") to this one and have never looked back. If there ever was a true successor to the MD, this is it. Well Done, Canon!
