Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM

Review Date: Jun 27, 2015 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $6,500.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Sharp, sharp, sharp. This is a very sharp lens. Takes awesome photographs
Wish it was a little lighter. Other than that no issues.

I bought this lens a few years back and thought it was time to add a review. I own many L Lenses but this one stands out.

What great lens! The Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM is truly amazing.

I use it for sports and wildlife and the image quality of photographs taken with this lens is superb.

Works great hand held as well as on a monopod or tripod.

You will not be disappointed with this lens.

Canon EOS Rebel XTi (400D)

Review Date: Jan 3, 2007 Recommend? no | Price paid: $900.00 | Rating: 4 

Pros: Price, Anti Dust feature, large LCD
I have gone through 4 XTI's and every one of them had under exposure. I went back to my 350D or Rebel XT. I contacted Canon about the under exposure. They acknowledge the issue but had no solution.

I would not recommend an XTI until Canon has a software patch to deal with the under exposure issue. The is a huge difference between the Rebel Xt and XTI picture quality. The same difference is found between the 20D and the XTI. For that reason I went back to my 350D as a back up camera for my 20D

Canon EOS 20D

Review Date: Jan 2, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,500.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: 8.2megapixel, 5fps, AF speed and price/performance ratio. Good build quality
Shutter noisy

I have had this camera now for 6 months and I love it. Pictures are sharp. This is an excellent camera for the money. My only problem is the shutter noise. I use an Canon XT as a back uo camera and that shutter is much quieter.
