Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM

ef500mmf_4_1_
Review Date: May 1, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $5,499.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp at f/4, excellent results with 1.4x, smaller and lighter then I imagined, definately hand-holdable (probably only for short periods of time though)
Cons:
This isn't really a con, but there are only a couple of options as far as tripod heads go, and you should budget yourself an additional $800 - $1K to spend on a pro setup from wimberly or RRS in order to mount this thing.

one word... amazing. When i opened the case, the first thing that came to mind was "this smells like a new car" It was a wonderful feeling to finally own my dream lens...
