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.

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.

My Canon ef 1.4X extenders is always attached to this ens and produces fast and great photographs.

Works great hand held as well as on a monopod or tripod. I use it always on a 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.
