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

ef100_400l_1_
Review Date: Jun 29, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,400.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Excellent Length Range, IS, Fast Focusing, Bokeh
Cons:
Slow Aperture (I hope it's f/4)

This is my second L lens and I love it so much. My copy is very sharp at 400mm f/6.3.
The IS allow me to take photos at 400mm hand holding, and the result is very sharp.

Review Date: Jun 22, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,165.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Excellent sharpness and contrast across their aperture and focal length ranges, (even at wide open f/4), Image Stabilization, superb L quality built, relatively light and compact.
Cons:
Hardly noticeable.

I return the EF 24-70mm f/2.8 for this one. As for indoor shooting, I have EF 50mm f/1.4. I think EF 24-105mm f/4 IS is one of best general purpose lens Canon ever made. My copy (2006 production) doesn't have flare issue and works perfectly. Buy it, you'll never regret it.
