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

ef100_400l_1_
Review Date: Nov 19, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Shrapness, Image Stabilizer
Cons:
The IS eats battery's, weight, lens hood could be better.(scratchable) f4,5/5,6

This is my favorite lens for zoo photography. I mount the camera and lens on a ball head equipped tripod. Keeping the ball head loose I can follow the animal as it walks around in its enclosure. When the animal holds still for a moment, I fire the shutter. The tripod/ballhead and image stabilization feature of this lens allow me to capture sharp images at much lower shutter speeds than would be possible if I were using a regular lens on a monopod.

if you have a strong arm, you can take @400mm at 1/30 shutter,(only for the lucky one's;-)a good picture...
