Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM

ef400mmf_56_1_
Review Date: Apr 23, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,100.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Light weight, excellent build quality, price, hood built-in
Cons:
No auto focus with 1.4x or 2.0x

I've just bought this lens as of yesterday; therefore, information here are mostly first impressions with few in door test shot only.

The lens feels much like the EF 70-200mm f/4L, also an excellent value.

I will post further information after shooting it under bright day light.



 
Canon Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2

Review Date: Apr 15, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $180.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Compact, light weight, doubles as a focus assist module
Cons:
none I can think of

It functions as advertised.

Eventhough it uses IR, I've found that in most indoor situations, direct line of sight is not necessary to operate the remote slaves.

Doubles as an excellent light weight focus assist module.




 
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

Review Date: Apr 14, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $550.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: light, sharp, price
Cons:
no o-ring on mount

Its light weight and smaller size allows me to carry it in most bags.

Image quality is hard to tell apart from its f2.8 counterparts.

It's now one of my favorite portrait lenses.

Unbelievable value for the price!
